William Connor Mages, d.d., was appointed Dean of Cork, by 
warrant, dated 22nd January, and by letters patent, dated 1st Feb- 
ruary, 1864, in room of H. T. Newman, deceased. 

W. 0. Magee, grandson of Archbishop Magee, and son of the 
late Rev. John Magee, Vicar of Drogheda, was born at the Deanery, 
Cork, on 27th December, 1821, and when 13 years old entered 
T.C.D., where he obtained a Scholarship in 1838 ; and having ob- 
tained other prizes, including Archbishop King's Divinity Prize, 
graduated a.b. in 1842, a.m. and b.d. in 1854, and dj>. in 1860.

L Old Evidences. 

The title-deeds and other old papers belonging to the See of 

Cloyne, being either lost or intentionally destroyed by the Fitz- 

-C geralds, while the See was in the possession of that family, there is 

OQ no early record now in the Registry, except that called Pipe Colman,t 

\: which is a list of the estates and manors belonging to the Bishoprick 

^ in 1304, and this was missing when Smith wrote his history, and is 

^ said to have been recovered by accident some years after. Sir J. 

Ware expressly says it was not found when he wrote. [See Ware's 

X Antiq., cap. 29, and Smith's Cork, vol. i., page 134]. It was com- 

*\ posed by order of Bishop Swaffham. 

' The earliest paper, except the Pipe Roll, which is now (1804) in 

-. the possession of the Registrar, is a sort of voluntary deposition by 

^ James FitzJohn Gerald, of Ballyfin, dated 1635, purporting to give 

evidence of the ancient state of the town. 

This evidence goes to prove " that Bishop Daniel, about the year 
"1260, gave the burial-grounds and passed the manor, with many 
" immunities, to the Citizens and Burgesses of Cloyne, they paying 
" certain sums, as had been agreed upon by Bishop David his pre- 
decessor, who was translated to Cashel in 1237. That a charter 
" was then solemnly given to the inhabitants ; that the city was 
4V "divided into English town or street, and Irish town or street. 
" The manor-house stood near the church, the Bishops having no 
" foot of land reserved in the town ; that the Bishop's house was in 
" Irish- street, but of late, in the last Sir John's time, they had got 
" one in English-street. The fines for renewal were certain, but 
" higher in Irish-street, viz. :— six and eightpence in one, and one 
" shilling in the other ; that Ruare, Monoclohane, and Monolushey 
" were called the ancient commons of Cloyne." 

* This account, written by Bishop Bennet, has the following memorandum pre- 
fixed to it : — u N.B. — I desire that on my death this book be given to the Registry 
of Cloyne, for the use of such of my successors as may feel any interest in these 
matters.— W. C." 

f This was printed by Richard C aulfikld, esq., f.s.a. Cork : George Nash, 



It must bo seen at first sight tbat this paper is suspicious to the 
highest degree, being the testimony of one of the Fitzgerald family 
in favour of rights which they had usurped from the See, and 
alluding to charters and transactions stated to have passed near four 
hundred years before, in support of which no evidence is produced, 
or even pretended to be in existence, but this hearsay tradition, de- 
posed by one of the parties interested. The date of the paper tends 
to increase our doubts, as it was the very time when Lord Strafford 
was beginning to question the title of the Fitzgeralds to the estates 
of the bee, and this being the only paper left in the Registry, is a 
curious circumstance. It is probable, however, that such facts con- 
tained in it as were not evidently fabricated to serve the Fitzgeralds' 
cause, such as some kind of charter being given by Bishop Daniel, 
the situation of the see-house, <fcc, may have a foundation in truth. 
That neither this family or any of the others in the neighbourhood 
hesitated at any step which led to transfer the possessions of the 
See into their own hands will be evident from the following pages, 
particularly from the transaction which comes next in order — the 
History of Leasing out the Demesne and other lands of the Bishop- 
rick in Fee-farm for ever. 

2. History of Leasing out the wliole Estate ofCloyne. 

The church of England suffered very severely by the Reforma- 
tion in its temporal affairs, above half the clerical property of this 
kingdom being vested by that event, but that of Ireland was in a 
manner annihilated. Bishopricks, Colleges, Glebes, and Tythes, were 
divided without shame or mercy among the great men of the time, 
or leased out on small rents for ever to the friends and relations of 
the incumbents. Among whom, one man of the name of Devereux, 
after plundering the whole estate of Dunbrodie, of whioh he was 
Abbot, had the interest to get himself appointed Bishop of Ferns, 
iu order to dilapidate in the same manner the possessions of that 
considerable See, which he did so compleatly as not to leave it worth 
a shilling. From this general devastation many of the Irish Bishop- 
ricks, as Aghadoe, Kilfenora, Kilmacduagh, &c., &c, never recovered. 
Killala, the best in Ireland, was only worth £300 per an. ; the 
Archbishoprick of Cashel, £100 ; Cork only £70, and the rest in 

Cloyne, situated at a distance from the capital, an appendage to 
its neighbouring See, without any resident head or guardian, had 
very little chance of escaping in the general plunder. The outlying 
estates of the See became immediately the prey of the nobility near 
them. The Earl of Cork seized the manor of Iuchiquin, Lord Barry- 
more formed pretensions to Kilmaclenau, Lord Clan car ty got pos- 
session of the extensive estates of Donoughmore, and the family of 
the Fitzgeralds, who were extremely powerful in Imokilly, and had 
already obtained the manor and the greatest part of the feurgery of 

* Clonfert was £200; Waterfonl, £100; Ardagh, £1 U. 8d. 


Cloy ne, cast their eyes on all the remaining possessions of the See. As 
the plan was a bold one, it was necessary to proceed with caution. 
In order to make the leases of Bishops' lands valid in those days, 
it was proper to have them confirmed by the Dean and Chapter, the 
church having thus, as it were, two securities that estates should not 
be wantonly granted away. In order to get over this difficulty, 
Mr. Fitzgerald, though a layman, got himself appointed to the 
Deanery of Cloyne, and filled the chapter with his dependants. 
Lay Prebends as well as Deans were not uncommon in the days of 
Queen Elizabeth. He then applied to Roger Skiddy, Bishop elect 
of Cork and Cloyne, to grant him the possessions of the latter in fee- 
farm, to which Skiddy is said to have consented in 1557. But there 
seems to have been some irregularity, or other obstacle to the quiet 
succession, both of Skiddy, who is stated to have resigned in 1566, 
and of Dixon, who was deprived in 1571, so that it was not till 18 
years after this that the business was perfected, when Matthew 
Shehan, who was the Bishop, in consideration of a fine of .£40, 
equal to £500 at present (1813), leased out on July 14, 1575,* at 
the annual rent of five marks, for ever, the whole Demesne of Cloyne 
(4 plowlands), with the lands of Killinemery, Coolbrigban, Bally- 
bane, Eilmaclenan, Ballycroneen, and Ballycotton, the extended 
value of which at present must be uear £5,000 per an. In order 
to give some colour to the transaction it was performed in this 
manner: — Bishop Shehan granted the fee-farm of all the temporali- 
ties of the See of Cloyne for ever to Richard Fitzmaurice and his 
heirs on the above conditions ; the Dean and Chapter confirmed the 
grant ; and then Fitzmaurice, who seems to have been merely an 
agent, is stated to have sold bis right and title to Master John Fitz- 
gerald, of Cloyne. 

3. Attempts by later Bishops to recover the See Lands. 

We learn nothing more of Cloyne till 1601, when Lord Deputy 
Mountjoy, being on his return from the siege of Kinsale to Dublin 
by way of Waterford, appears to have gone out of his road to pay 
a visit here. " On the 9th of March, 1601," says the author of the 
Hibernia Pacata, [page 279] "his Lordship slept at Cloyne, being a 
manor-house and town belonging to the See of Cork, then let to 
Master John Fitzedmunds, who entertained us and all the Gentle- 
men, Captains, and others in his Lordship's train. And the Lord 
Deputy, being well convinced of his loyalty on other occasions, 
knighted him on leaving his house the next morning to pursue his 

In the meantime Bp. Lyon, who succeeded Shehan, made every 
possible exertion to set aside the bargain of his predecessors and 

* The inscribed stone on the west side of the Palace now (1818) existing bears 
date 1578, with the letters I. G. E., and seems to have been set up so early after 
the Fitzgeralds obtained possession, as an evidence of their right [Another stone 
with the same letters, dated 1581, was discovered in pulling down the old barn in 
182G, and is now inserted in the north wall of the haggard.] 

VOL. III. B 2 


recover the estates of the See. In the year 1606 he petitioned the 
English Privy Council on the subject The cause underwent several 
hearings in the Star Chamber, and, though it is wonderful such a 
case could stand a moment, it was referred back to the Council in 
Ireland, where Sir John Fitzgerald had sufficient interest to prevent 
any decision at all. 

Sir John, however, was so conscious of the real weakness of his 
claim that he contrived another method of securing the lands to his 
family; for, not long after, viz., on May 5, 1608, he resigned his 
manor, castle, town, and lands of Cloyne, freely and fully, to the 
Crown, and then, as appears by a constat at present in the office at 
Dublin, got a re-grant of the whole from James I. to himself and 
his heirs for ever. Nor did he rest here, but, at his death, in 1611, 
in order to throw another bar in the way of the Bishop, he, by his 
last will, declares the Crown his heir, and leaves the whole Cloyne 
estate to the disposal of Charles I. This will, as be might expect 
(and probably intended), was concealed by his children, and kept 
in order to be produced if ever the cause should be likely to go 
against them. 

In 1613 Bp. Lyon preferred another petition to the Council, 
stating that Matthew Shehan had no legal right to lease away the 
Demesne lands of his See, and that they, with his house at Cloyne, 
had been forcibly withheld from him by Sir John Fitzedmund Fitz- 
gerald, and since his death, by his heir. So far, however, was the 
good Prelate from obtaining his end, and so secure did the Fitz- 
gerald family suppose themselves to be in the possession of the 
Cloyne estate, that in 1624 Sir John Fitzgerald petitioned for leave 
to make a pier at his port of Bally cot ton, on condition that the cus- 
toms arising from the exports and imports should be settled on him 
and his assigns. 

In this hopeless situation of the lands belonging to Cloyne (the 
Bishop of which, from the fee-farm rent, which was all the property 
he had, was nicknamed " Episcopus quinque marcarum"), the inter- 
ference of a higher power gave a most fortunate turn to the cause. 
The ravages of the Irish Church, which had been carried on in the 
most open manner during the reigns of Henry VIIL, Edward VI., 
and Elizabeth, and more covertly, though almost as effectually in 
the time of James I., were stopped on the accession of Charles I. ; 
and it is to the credit of this Prince not only to have checked this 
disgraceful and ruinous practice, but in many instances to have 
forced the plunderers to make restitution. Lord Strafford, a minis- 
ter who had great virtues as well as great faults, had the honour to 
save the remains of the Irish Church. He found it, on liis arrival 
in 1631, in a state of ruin. Many of the Bishopricks were entirely 
destroyed — as Ferns, Lismore, and Cloyne. The revenues of the 
others were reduced to a trifle. The churches were pulled down, 
and the glebes and tythes passed into the hands of laymen to such 
an extent that one nobleman in the western part of the kingdom 


(the Earl of Clanrickarde) had no less than 100 livings in his own 
possession, while another (the Earl of Cork) in the south, besides 
all the landed estates of Lismore and Youghal, had impropriated all 
the livings belonging to both of them. 

The Lord Deputy began first to recover the lands which had been 
usurped from the Bishopricks, and the mode he seems to have 
adopted for the purpose was by no means destitute of Equity. He 
threatened the possessors with inquiring strictly into their titles, 
and fining them severely for their injustice, if any fraud should be 
discovered ; but to such as were willing to resign their fee-farms, 
and consent to take a fresh lease from the See at a higher and more 
equitable rent, tho' still very advantageous to the Tenant, he pro- 
mised to prevail on the Bishops to grant such leases for the term of 
sixty years, thus in fact allowing the Lessees a reasonable advantage 
for any improvement they might have made on the lands, but re- 
serving the lands themselves for the benefit of the Church. 

The estate of Cloyno was at this time in the possession of Sir 
Thomas Fitzgerald, second son of the first Lessee, who had sold some 
of the lands and mortgaged others, and whose case, from the tenure 
of his family for seventy years, as well as from the constat of 1608, 
and other circumstances, was particularly complicated ; but Bishop 
Lyon had taken care to lay open the original corrupt bargain to 
public notice, and it had made some noise in England, for, in the 
correspondence of Lord Strafford with Archbishop Laud, the latter, 
while congratulating him on his success in recovering the property 
of the Irish Bishopricks, adds — "I hope you will join Sir Thomas 
FitzEdmonds to the rest of his Fellows, and make him vomit up 
Cloyne."* This was in 1634 ; but Strafford was not able to take 
any step of consequence in the business till 1638, when he removed 
Dr. Richard Boyle, who held the three Sees, to the Archbishoprick 
of Tuam, and with great good sense separated Cloyne from the 
others, and gave it a Bishop of its own, as more likely to pursue its 
peculiar interests with steadiness and zeal ; — this was Dr. George 
Synge, a person every way qualified for the task. 

The new Bishop, secure of the countenance of the Lord Deputy, 
began the business with considerable spirit. He petitioned the 
Council board against the Earl of Cork for retaining from him the 
manor of Inchiquin and part of the lands of Donoghmore ; against 
William Power, of Shanagarry, for the estates of Rath-hilly and 
Gortroe ; against Sir Andrew Barret for lands in Iniscarra and 
Agabollogue ; against the family of Hartaker for 7 plowlands in 
Ballygourney ; against Mr. Barry for Eilmaclenan ; and above all, 
against Sir Thomas Fitzgerald for usurping, under his pretended 
fee-farm, the Demesne and other estates of Cloyne. The possessors 
of some of these lands stood their ground, and their causes were put

Cloyne, consented to an amicable reference ; and the Bishop's refe- 
ree was Bramhall, Bishop of Deny, a sturdy friend to the Church, 
and the ecclesiastical counsellor of Lord Strafford. With respect 
to Eilmaclenan, Bishop Bramhall awarded 80 acres surrounding 
Mr. Barry's house, with the house itself, to Mr. Barry, for ever, in 
consideration, probably, of his improvements and ready submission. 
The Castle and 20 acres to be the Demesne of the Bishop for erer ; 
and the rest of the estate, which was a very considerable one, to 
be leased to Mr. Barry for sixty years. 

His decree for Cloyne was, that the Bishop should have the Castle 
of Cloyne and 600 English acres, to be laid out as nearly to it as 
possible, with 12 acres at Bally cot ton, and the fishery there, all 
in Demesne; and that he should in return give a lease for 60 
years of the 4 plowlands of Cloyne, one of Ballyonane, two of 
Ballyootton, two of Ballybane, one of Ballybrenagh, and two of 
Ballycroneen, Eillenemer, and Bruaghy, to Sir John Fitzgerald, son 
of Sir Thomas, and grandson of old Sir John ; and that the said Sir 
John and James Fitzjobn* might be allowed to cut turf in the bog 
of Cloyne, they paying yearly XI 60 for the first two articles, fifty 
shillings for the three next, and 120 shillings for the others. This 
decree was submitted to by both parties, ratified at the Council 
board, and signed by Lord Strafford, March 15, 1639, which that of 
Eilmaclenan unfortunately was not. 

Sir John Fitzgerald, in obedience to the order of Council, surren- 
dered the estate and Castle of Cloyne into the hands of the Bishop, 
and took a lease of the plowlands, &c., as above mentioned. He is 
reported, however, to have complained much of the award, and said 
that Lord Kerry, who had been named with Bramhall as the referee 
on his part, had consented to have him cheated out of his lands. 

Bishop Synge had thus so far done his duty to the See, and ful- 
filled the intentions of his patron, that in the short space of two 
years he had raised the revenues of Cloyne from five marks to £500 
per annum,f and he was proceeding, with every reason to expect 
success, against the other plunderers of the See estates, when ho 
was prevented by the great Rebellion, which broke out on the 23rd 
October, 1641. Synge, as well as his neighbour, Chappie, Bishop of 
Cork, was obliged to fly in order to save his life, and Edmund Fitz- 
gerald, eldest son of Sir John, as might be expected, immediately 
disclaimed all obedience to Bramhall's award, and seized the Castle 
and estates of Cloyne as the legal possessions of his family. He 
retained these lands and enjoyed the profits of them till after 
Synge's death, which was in 1653 ; but in 1654 the party of Crom-

well, which was now paramount in Ireland, expelled the Fitzgeralds 
from all the ostites of the Church, and set them aside, to be divided 
with other rehel and clerical property, as payment for the arrears of 
the army. Matters were in this state, and the lands of Oloyne had 
hardly any owner at all, when, in 1660, Charles II. was restored to 
his throne. 

The Ministers of the new King, in order to pay court to Lord 
Broghill, whose interest in the South of Ireland was of the utmost 
consequence to the Government, promoted his cousin, Dr. Michael 
Boyle, to the united Sees of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross. Thus, for a 
private end, the rule, which Lord Strafford had established with a 
view to the advantages of the Church, was broken through, and the 
consequences of this bad policy Cloyne feels at the present hour. 
Dr. Boyle, however, appears to have by no means neglected the 
rights of his See. He entered immediately upon all the Demesne 
lands of Cloyne, so long the subject of dispute, got possession (I 
suppose on alleged breach of covenant by the Fitzgeralds) of Bally- 
bane and part of Ballycotton, and was taking steps to prove his 
title to the other estates when, in 1663, he was promoted to the 
Archbishoprick of Dublin. 

4. Final recovery of the principal Estates. 

In the year 1663 Bishop Boyle was removed to Dublin, and he was 
succeeded in his three Sees by one of the steadiest and most active 
friends to the See of Cloyne that ever wore its mitre. This was 
Edward Synge son [younger brother?] of George, the former Bishop. 
He had a task to perform that required all his exertions. Besides 
innumerable usurpers on his estates in Cork and Ross, he found in 
Cloyne Edmund Fitzgerald, of Bally m aloe, claiming all the revenues 
of the See under the old fee- farm of 1575, insisting that Bramhall'H 
award was null and illegal, and that the whole belonged to him, as 
inherited from his ancestors. The neighbouring gentlemen, particu- 
larly Lord Inchiquin and Sir St. John Brodrick claimed different 
parts of the same as mortgaged or purchased by them. Lord Barry 
had taken possession of Kilmaclenan, and Sir Audley Mervyn had 
passed patent from the Crown for Ballycarnane. Bishop Boyle had 
only disturbed this nest of hornets, which flew in a rage about the 
head of his successor. 

Mr. Fitzgerald, who, though one of the most important of these 
adversaries, was luckily one whose cause was the least defensible, 
began the attack upon the Bishop the very year of his consecration, 
by producing an order from the Court of Exchequer to be put in 
possession of part of the estate. In order to obtain this, he first 
produced the will of his father, Sir John Fitzgerald, the younger, 
dated Sept. 1, 1640, by which he bequeathed to the then King, Charles 
I., all his Messuages, Manors, and lands, as well those held under the 
Bishoprick as others, and further confessed that he had secreted a 
will of his grandfather, old Sir John Fitzgerald (who died in 1611), 


to the same purport. This will of 1640 Edmund Fitzgerald now 
first proved in 1664, contending that his fee of the manor and re- 
venues of Cloyne, being thus vested in the Crown before the rebellion, 
conld not be subject to forfeiture, and still less to any claim from 
the Bishop. But supposing this to be an insufficient plea, he also 
offered to prove that neither he nor his father were any way con- 
cerned in the rebellion, and that upon any ground he must, there- 
fore, have a right to the lease of the plowlands awarded to his family 
by Bp. BramhalL This last plea seems to have had such an effect 
on the Court, that he and his father were declared " innocent Pa- 
pists, 1 ' as the phrase then was, and a decree issued to put him in 
possession of such of the lands as had been awarded to Sir John 
Fitzgerald, the younger. It was at the same time given out by him- 
self and his friends, that an offer had been actually made to him at 
the Castle, that upon certain conditions he should continue to hold 
all these lands under tenure of the Crown, which conditions he un- 
advisedly refused. 

Bp. Synge, alarmed at the ground the enemy seemed to have 
gained, found it right to direct all his force against this adversary. 
Several hearings were had in the cause before the Court of Exche- 
quer ; and in 1665 the Bishop prevailed so far as to obtain a Cuato- 
diam from the Crown, at the rent of £7 12*. Sd. of the plowlands in 
question, and by this stroke of policy gave the See a hold on the 
estate, and prevented its being sold on pretence of mortgage or other- 
wise, as some part of it had already been to a more formidable an- 

The confused state of all property in Ireland from the contending 
claims of the Crown, the Church, the Army, the Adventurers, the 
Loyalists, and the Rebels, was, by this time, so alarming, that it be- 
came necessary to frame an Act, which was properly called the Act of 
Settlement, and was further explained by a second Act in 1666, and 
is the basis on which almost all the titles to landed property rest at 
present On this occasion Synge redoubled his exertions both in 
and out of Parliament, and at last, by the assistance of the Attorney- 
General Flower, put an end for ever to the long dispute concerning 
the principal part of the Cloyne property, by inserting the following 
clause in the Act of Explanation. 

<( And Be it farther Enacted, that all and singular the Messuages, 
Manors, Lands, (fee, whereof Sir John FitzEdmund Fitzgerald, 
Knight, died seized, or whereof Sir John FitzEdmund Gerald, Knight, 
the grandson, died seized in 1640, and which were then belonging, 
and of right appertaining to the Bishoprick of Cloyne, and were by 
the last will of the said Sir John FitzEdmund Gerald, Knight, dated 
Sept. 1, 1640, given and bequeathed to his late Majesty King 
Charles I., shall be, and are hereby vested in the now Bishop of 
Cloyne and bis successors for ever. 

"And as the Right Reverend Edward, Lord Bishop of Cork, 
Cloyne, and Ross, and Sir William Flower, Knight, have been at 


great pains and charges in discovering his Majesty's title, Be it 
Enacted, that a lease shall be granted to them for 21 years of such 
lands not belonging to the Bishoprick as shall be by this Bill given 
to his Majesty. Reserving to Edmund 'Fitzgerald, of Ballymaloe, 
and his successors, all such title as he had to the premises on Oct 
22, 1641." 

Against this Act Mr. Fitzgerald petitioned the Parliament and 
the Crown, and gave every other opposition in his power, but was 
at last obliged to submit, and to content himself with the benefi- 
cial lease of that part of the See estate which was given him by 
Bramhall's award, and which had yet 34 years to run. And the 
Bishop on his part had now an undisputed right to the Castle 
and 600 acres of Demesne at Cloyne, with the 12 acres and the 
fishery at Bally cotton, and he had the reflection of having done his 
duty by the See, and that his successors, after no long period, must 
have a most valuable accession to their income. That income in 
his time appears to have consisted of very little more than what we 
have mentioned, viz., the Demesne and the lease of £160 per an., 
and Ballycroneen some time after, with the addition of the Warden- 
ship of Yongbal, and certain impropriations which he was soon after 
(1665) obliged to resign. The whole of which was certainly un- 
equal to bear one-tenth part of the expense of his lawsuits. 

5. Ballycroneen. 

The next attempt of the Bishop was to enter into possession of 
the two plow lands of Ballycroneen, on which he had already ob- 
tained a Oustodi/tm, There was a considerable mortgage on these 
lands due to a merchant of Cork, and the view of the Bishop seems 
to have been by persuading Mr. Fitzgerald to part with his small 
remaining interest, which besides being thus incumbered was only 
leasehold from the See, and then redeeming the mortgage itself, he 
. should get rid of all claims on this estate for ever. And it would 
have been fortunate if he could have preserved the same plan in 
other instances, for in this it was completely successful. On the 
17th Dec, 1666, an order was made in the Court of Exchequer, as 
matter of record, that Edmuud Fitzgerald had conveyed all his right 
in Ballycroneen to Michael, Archbishop of Dublin, and his heirs ; 
and in 1667, John Fitzgerald, of Cork, in consideration of £250, 
sells his lands in Ballycroneen to Henry Browne, of Cork, and his 
heirs, in as full and ample a manner as his father, Fitzgerald, mer- 
chant, of Cork, held and enjoyed the same from old Sir John Fitz- 
gerald ; and Henry Browne immediately sells them to the Bishop, 
who thus obtained quiet possession. So matters rested till the 
Bishop's death in 1678, when an extraordinary transaction took 
place for, on March 12, 1679, tho Bishop's eldest son, Dean Samuel 
Synge, passed patent from the Crown for these very lands to his 
own private use. The patent states that Sir John Fitzgerald mort- 
gaged the town and lands of Ballycroneen, of which he was seized 


in fee in 1627, to Thomas Fitzgerald, of Cork, merchant, whieh 
lands were afterwards sold to the late Lord Bishop of Cork ; that 
the said Sir John Fitzgerald was an Irish Papist and a rebel on 
Oct. 22, 1641, that therefore all right of redeeming and mortgage 
was not in the said Papist, but in the King as forfeited : that Dean 
Samuel Synge, who now possesses these lands, has discovered and con- 
fessed the King's title; that the said Beau claims the rules of Dis- 
covery, paying such a proportion of the value to the commissioned 
officers who have claims on forfeited lands ; therefore the King, by 
and with the advice of his Lieutenant and Counsellor, James, Duke 
of Orinond, does give and grant the Dean, his heirs and assigns, 
the two plowlands of Bally croneen, containing 211 profitableacres, by 
the Down Survey, 341 acres, 3 roods, and 6 perches Euglish measure, 
the Dean paying to hie Majesty a quit-rent half-yearly of £3 is. Id. 
These lands the Dean sells under the patent to his brother, Edward 
Synge, and leaves the See, whose title to these very lands his father 
and his grandfather [uncle 1] had taken such pains to establish, to 
do without them as well as it could. 

This transaction, to say the best of it, was a very suspicious one. 
Edward Synge, in a letter now in the Registry, dated 1693, gives 
but a lame account of it, calls it "an unhappy patent, passed by 
mistake, and which the Synge family thought the only way of saving 
the estate in question, as not only Lord Inchiquin but Sir Allen 
Brodrick were endeavouring to include it in their own patents." 
There is not any reason to conclude the old Bishop himself was privy 
to it. Be that as it may, Bishop Edward Jones, when he succeeded 
Sheridan in the See of Cloyne, was luckily not a man to be trifled 
with. He filed his bill in Chancery against the Synges, for detain- 
ing the plowlands of Ballycroneen, and in 1687 forced them to re- 
sign all claim to them, on the mortgage of £250 being repaid to 
them. The Bishop immediately let them as lands regularly belong- 
ing to the See, for 21 years, to John Silver, at £20 per an. And 
they have been since leased to the Longfield family, at XI 50, who 
let them to under tenants at £300, paying, however, at each renewal 
a handsome fine. 

6. Land, <fcc, about Cloyne. 

Bishop Synge had thus succeeded in establishing himself in the 
Castle of Cloyne, and in the undisputed possession of the 600 acres 
in Demesne ; he had also, by a private transaction, become master 
of Ballycroneen, containing, as we have seen, 300 more. The lease 
of 60 years, however, which Branihall's award had given to the 
Fitzgeralds, still detained the 4 plowlands of Cloyne and other 
estates from him. Mr. Purdon, who was Lessee under the Fitzgerald 
family for part of that property, harrassed the Bishop with lawsuits 
for the Mill, the Malt-house, and other appurtenances of the Manor. 
The Lord President of Munster, in 1668, sate as arbitrator between 
the parties, and settled amicably some of their differences. But 


fresh questions were continually arising. The direct line of old Sir 
John had by this time ended in a daughter, who carried the con- 
tested estates and claims of her family into that of Lord Inchiquin, 
who was already at issue with the Bishop in his own right on 
various points, such as the tolls of the markets, &c., and his men 
beat and abused Mr. George Synge, who endeavoured to collect 
them for his father. Lord Inchiquin contended also for the valuable 
property of Kilbuoy, Ballyonane, Knockagowlane, Ballyknock, and 
the three great meadows on the N. side of Kilbuoy, insisting upon 
it, if the lands were not forfeited to the Crown, that they were 
his as heir-general of tho Fitzgeralds, and if they were forfeited, 
they were his by private grant from the King. Upon these grounds, 
when the 60 years lease expired, in 1700, the then Lord Inchi- 
quin refused Pooley, Bp. of Cloyne, possession of these lands. 
Violence was used on both sides, and it was brought before the 
Courts of Law, where part, at least, of the estate was determined by 
the award of three Judges to belong to the See, and in 1701 an order 
issued from the Court of Chancery for the Bishop to enter, which he 
did, and the See is in possession of it at present. 

On the same pretence, in 1666, Lord Inchiquin was in the act of 
passing a patent from the Crown, by which the lands of Ballycotton, 
Bally brenagh, Ballybane, and Killenemer, being nearly all the re- 
maining estates of the See, which he also claimed as heir to the 
Fitzgeralds, were given in fee to him for ever. But Bishop 
Syuge, who was always on his guard against encroachments of this 
nature, got intelligence of the transaction, applied to the Court of 
Claims, and had them struck out before the patent was allowed to 

"With more success, this Lord attacked the Bishop in Parliament, 
and by a decision of the Committee of Privileges, of which Primate 
Boyle was Chairman, in 1665, obliged him to restore the impropria- 
tions of Aghada, Inch,* Corkbeg, Clonmult, Ballinacurra, and Din- 
gindonovan, which had belonged to the Fitzgerald family, and 
which Synge had got possession of in right of his See. The Bishop 
pleaded, petitioned^ and protestedt without effect, and seems to 
have fought to the last moment. He was obliged soon after, in 
consequence of a general Act, to restore the impropriated rectories 
of Downbullog, Kilruane, Whitechurch, Ballyspillane, Ballyought- 
ragh, and Ballintemple, to the Vicars of those livings ; and it is not 
easy to say how those of Killowillen, Garrinafecky, the half tythes 
of Kathcoursie, and the Particle of Trabolgan, all whicli the See 
holds at present, came to escape ; especially as, by an order of the 
House of Lords, Sept. 4, 1662, it appears the tythes of the latter 
had been disputed.];

7. Cor Abbey, Kilvagh, &c. 

Nor was the Bishop more fortunate in his endeavours to recover 
to his See the lands of Chor Abbey, Kilvagh, Knocknagriffin, and 
Ballyvournish, consisting of three plowlands. He found them in 
the possession of Mr. Brady, and, as Brady was unable or unwilling 
to stand the expense of a lawsuit, the Bishop had prevailed upon 
him, in 1665, so far, that he agreed to take a lease from the See 
at the rent of £108 per an. But the next year Sir St. John 
Brodrick purchased Brady's title, and directed him to file a bill 
against the Bishop, which he did, but without success, for the Court 
of Exchequer issued an order to the Sheriff of Cork to put the 
Bishop of Cloyne in possession of this estate, on which (so unsettled 
was the power of the law in those days) Sir Allan Brodrick com- 
plained to the House of Commons of the Sheriff daring to seize his 
property during his attendance on Parliament, and the Speaker, Sir 
Audley Mervyn, sent his warrant to the Sheriff to give up his pos- 
session immediately, or he should answer for it to the House, which, 
however, the Sheriff (having first taken the advice of the Attorney 
and Solicitor General) refused to do. The Bishop complains heavily 
that his adversary used every advantage against him, that he re- 
tained all the most eminent counsel whenever the cause was heard, 
that he got the Lords Justices Orrery and Anglesea to interpose in 
his favour in 1668, and prevailed afterwards, 1669, with the Lord 
Lieutenant, Lord Robarts (who, being a violent Presbyterian, was 
easily engaged against the Church) to such a degree, that he in- 
sisted on determining the cause according to the old arbitrary 
method of the Castle Chamber, and actually sent Sims, the Bishop's 
agent, to prison, because he would not consent to abide by his 
decree. Still, however, the cause of the Bishop was so good, or bis 
spirit so high, that he continued to urge his claim for many years, 
and, after all subterfuges of law and interest at Court had proved 
useless, Sir St. John Brodrick agreed, as Barry had done, to admit 
the Bishop's title, and take a lease from the See ; but the time of 
doing this was put off under various pretences till Synge died, when 
the new Bishop had to fight the cause de novo, and thus the matter 
hung on till the succeeding Prelates, being utterly tired out with 
the expense and delay, the claim dropped by degrees, and the estate 
was in ti rely lost. 

8. Kilmaclenan. 

The same fate, with almost the same circumstances, attended the 
estate of Kilmaclenan. The property, which is of great value, lies 
near Buttevant ; it had early belonged to the See, and was one of 
those mentioned by Bishop Lyon, 1613, in his petition to the Privy 
Council, as unjustly alienated by his predecessor, Matthew Shehan, 
to old Sir John Fitzgerald. Sir John had sold it to a Mr. Robinson, 
and Robinson to Mr. Barry, and being claimed by Bishop George 
Synge in 1639, it was awarded by Bp. Bramhall to be restored

to tlie See, and a beneficial lease granted to Mr. Barry. Some delay 
having happened, which prevented Lord Strafford from confirming 
this award at the Council Board, the rebellion, which broke out soon 
after, put it out of the power of the Bishop to obtain possession. 
The facts, however, were so clearly proved in 1666, that Lord 
Barry, who then held the estate, could make no defence, the Court 
of Claims therefore determined the right to be in the See of Cloyne, 
and a lease was granted of four plowlands to Sir Nicholas Purdon 
for £40 per an. At this moment Sir St. John Brodrick appeared 
in the place of the Barry s, declaring he had purchased the estate 
for a valuable consideration, and, as in the case of Chor Abbey, <fec, 
wearied out Bishop Synge and his successors, and obtained posses- 
sion of the whole, which he soon after sold (perhaps not quite satis- 
fied with his own title) for a considerable sum. 

9. Ballybane. 

While the Barl of Inchiquin, Sir John Fitzgerald, and others, 
were labouring with little success to get possession of the estates of 
Cloyne, the family of Brodrick, more able, more active, and it may 
be, having sometimes a better cause, were able almost uniformly to 
succeed, bo that, instead of lamenting the fine estates of Chor Abbey, 
Kilmaclenan, and Ballybane, which Sir St. John Brodrick was able 
to seize, the later Bishops have no small reason to rejoice that other 
lands, particularly Ballyonane and Ballycroueen, on both of which 
he was said to have cast his eyes, were able to escape him. It is, 
indeed, extremely evident, that the title of the See to Ballybane 
was as clear and firm as to any property they ever had, and even 
to the Demesne itself. 

It is mentioned in almost every title in the Register, it is expressly 
described as two plowlauds, to be leased to the Fitzgeralds by Bram- 
hall's award in 1639, and it was entered upon with the other un- 
doubted possessions of the Bishoprick by Dr. Michael Boyle in 1661. 
But when Bp. Synge was just instituted to the three Sees, an 
order was obtained from the Court of Claims, surreptitiously, and 
without giving him any sort of notice, by which Patrick Rice (to 
whose father, Thomas, Sir John Fitzgerald was said to have mort- 
gaged some of his estates) was put in possession of this, as an inno- 
cent rebel, not liable to forfeiture. Rice sold to Brodrick, who, 
sometimes disputing the cause, and sometimes offering to compro- 
mise, contrived to keep possession. In this case, however, as in 
that of Chor Abbey, he is said to have been so hard pressed at last 
as to agree on taking a lease from the See. But when Bp. Sheridan, 
in 1680, claimed the benefit of this agreement with his predecessor, 
Sir St. John refused to consent to it, and continued to harrass the 
Bishop with his usual perseverance. Among the various modes he 
used to perplex and tease his adversary, one was sufficiently curious. 
When he was Sheriff of the county, an order came from the Courts 
above for him to seize the estate of Ballybremagh, a plowland 


belonging to Mr. Supple, of Dromada, a Papist rebel, and deliver it 
to Lord Orrery, in part of satisfaction for bis arrears. Sir St John 
cbose to read Ballybrenagh, took possession of this last in due form, 
and delivered to Lord Orrery's servants the undisputed estate of his 
own adversary, the Bishop of Cloyne, who, surprised beyond mea- 
sure at this unexpected blow, complains heavily of the trouble and 
expence he was put to before he could find the reason of so violent 
a proceeding against his property. In the Registry is preserved a 
haudsome letter from the Earl of Orrery to the Bishop on the sub- 
ject, resigning the land to him again, and disclaiming any know- 
ledge of the transaction. Trifling as this anecdote may appear, it 
shews to what vexations the Bishop was exposed upon all occasions 
by his neighbour. By directing talents of considerable acuteness to 
the same object for a number of years, Sir St. John Brodrick tired 
out a succession of Prelates, inactive from their age, unused to busi- 
ness, and far from wealthy, and sometimes plaguing them, and at 
others eluding them, trusting to delay against their repeated deaths 
and successions, and forcing every new Bishop to fight the whole 
battle over again, he finally triumphed in every contest, and Bally- 
bane (which lies between £allymaloe and the sea) is still in the pos- 
session of his family, and lets for above .£400 per annum. In giving 
this account of the long and unsuccessful disputes which my prede- 
cessors have had with the Brodrick family, it is but fair to mention 
that in arguing from the papers in the possession of the See, I 
have only examined the evidence on one side. Sir St. John might 
have much to urge in favour of his mortgages, and that the pur- 
chases on his side were fair and real transactions. I can only state 
that it appears to me as if delay and intrigue, and other suspicious 
circumstances, were practised on many occasions by his agents ; and 
it struck one of the Bishops in so strong a light, that he makes a 
most solemn prayer to Heaven on that idea, and fervently begs 
"the repeated injuries which Sir St. John had inflicted on the 
Church of Cloyne may never be visited by God on him or his pos- 
terity." This prayer, which is, I believe, in Bishop Edward Synge's 
hand, is at the back of one of the papers in the registry, which 
seems to have been used in the cause; and, though the Doctor 
might be partial, it proves him to be forgiving aud sincere. 

10. Tlie Burger y. 

The loss (for such it may in some sense be termed, though the See 
has a profitable lease) of the Burgery of Cloyne was attended with 
circumstances not so serious, but, if possible, more provokirig. 
When Bp. David M*Kelly in 1237 gave the charter to the town, 
which was confirmed by his successor, Bishop Daniel, in 1260, the 
Burgesses first obtained their little freeholds with fine certain, which, 
shifting hands, by degrees came, in great part, into the hands of 
the Fitzgerald family, for there is no reason to doubt this part of 
the testimony of Fitzgerald of Ballyfin. This property, tho' the 


private and undoubted estate of the Fitzgeralds, being held as well 
as the manors, Ac, in fee-farm from the See, became, by the words 
of the Act of Settlement, in consequence of the forfeiture in 1641, 
revested in the Bishop. But a considerable part of the Burgery 
being the freehold of other rebels, did not, tho' equally forfeited, 
return to the See, but made part of a fund for augmenting such 
Bishopricks as had been most plundered in the rebellion. Commis- 
sioners were appointed by Parliament to determine what Sees should 
receive the benefit arising from this fund, and in what proportions 
it should be distributed ; and, although Oloyne had been a Sufferer 
by the rebellion beyond all measure, the Commissioners were of 
opinion that this Bishoprick, happening at the time to be united to 
the See of Cork, ought not to be considered as entitled to any com- 
pensation for its own losses, and they confined the benefit of the 
fund to Dublin, Cashel, Eildare, Ferns, Ossory, Eillaloe, and Lime- 
rick. And what was an aggravation of the misfortune was, that this 
estate of the Burgery had been originally part of the See lands, and 
lay particularly convenient to the See House. The case appeared 
ho particularly hard to Dr. Boyle, Archbishop of Dublin, who, having 
been himself Bishop of Cloyne, was acquainted with all the circum- 
stances, that he made a private agreement with the then Bishop to 
apply for the Burgery to be annexed to the See of Dublin, promising 
that if ever Cloyne was separated from the Bishoprick of Cork, that 
he would use all his interest to have this land restored to it. Thus, 
this portion of the Burgery, consisting of 59 houses (of which 
16 bad cbimnies, and the rest were cabins), with 4 gardens, and 
69 acres of profitable lands, of the yearly value of ,£50, inter- 
mixed so much with the Bishop's property, and even surrounding 
his house, as to bo in a manner necessary to him if he ever became 
resident, was alienated for ever from the See of Cloyne and given 
to that of Dublin, and the Archbishop Boyle always professed to 
hold the estate merely in cautelam, and is said annually to have 
distributed the income arising from it in charity* In process of 
time another Archbishop arose " who knew not Joseph," for in 
1678, when Cloyne was separated from Cork, the Bishops of it were 
as far as ever from obtaining possession of the Burgery, and Arch- 
bishop King, in 1705, let a lease of it to Lord Inchiquin for £25 
per annum, very much to the annoyance of Bishop Crowe, who then 
possessed the See, and who, as well as his predecessor, Dr. Pooley, 
had entered into negotiations to recover it But tho' Crowe was 
so unfortunate with Archbishop Ring, one of his predecessors had 
very nearly succeeded, in 1695, with Archbishop Narcissus Marsh, 
who was then petitioning the British Parliament to get the estate 
of Seaton, near Dublin, annexed to his See, and who was prevailed 
with, on the matter being explained to him, to consent to have a 
clause inserted in the Act empowering him, on condition of ob- 
taining Seaton, to alienate the Burgery to the Bishoprick of Cloyne. 
There was now every prospect of obtaining this desirable end, for

There still remained a part of the Burgery which belonged neither 
to the See of Cloyne or Dublin, consisting either of freeholds, the 
property of innocent Papists, as they were called, who had not been 
concerned in the rebellion of 1641, or of estates forfeited by that 
rebellion and vested in Commissioners appointed by Parliament to 
satisfy the arrears of the army, or to sell for various purposes of the 
Crown. Of these, Bishop Crowe, out of his private fortune, bought 
the lands of Bohermore, adjoining the town, which he left for 
charitable purposes, and Lord Inchiquin still possesses some fields 
next the mill, which he purchased from the same fund. 

Bishop Crowe, however, being now possessed, either in himself or 
in right of the See, or under the lease from the Archbishop, of almost 
all the Burgery lands, seems to have made great exchanges of lands 
so as to free the ground immediately adjoining the See House from 
the inconveniences of which he had so often complained. It is, I 
confess, very extraordinary that no traces of such exchange appear 
from the papers in the Registry. I therefore only mention it as 
matter of conjecture. But the idea is confirmed by the circumstance 
that the intermixed property which Crowe laments so much is not 
now to be discovered, all the lands and holdings near the Bishop's 
house being his own (one very small part of the paddock excepted, 
which forms part, not of the Dublin estate, as might naturally be sup- 
posed, where it seems to be described under No. 2, but of the estate 
left by Crowe to his Charity). And what is still more remarkable, 
No. 16, the Steeple garden, which is expressly reckoned in the list 
as the Archbishop's, belongs also at present to the Charity estate, 
which is not to be accounted for unless we conclude it to have been 
given in exchange for some of the Bohermore lands. Now, if we 
suppose the part of the Rock meadow abutting close to the E. wall 
of the Bishop's garden (where there are still evident traces of a street 
or high road) to have been once covered with cabins and cabin- 
gardens, and the high rocky ground in the paddock to have been 
under the same circumstances (which tradition* also asserts), some 

* Mr. Cornelius, one of the Vicars Choral, has assured me he remembers the road 
or street leading through the paddock close to the N. garden wall, and turning at 
the £. to the well, with remains of the ruined cabins removed by Bishops Stopford 
and Johnson, still appearing on the side of it. This road branched out from the 
upper end of Garryowen-lane, near the Bishop's old porter's lodge, since destroyed, 
and joined the road to the Commons at the S.E. end of the garden wall. It must 



of these belonging to the Dublin and others to the Bohermore 
estates (then Lord Inchiquin's), we at once see the justice of Crowe's 
statement, " that he was surrounded so as not to be able to plant 
or build," and, at the same time, account for his being able, by ex- 
changing the Steeple garden and such outlying plots of ground, to 
enable his successors to remove all the cabins and other nuisances 
near the See House, and leave the Bishop the command he has at 
present. Why the small spot in the paddock was not included in 
this general exchange is well known, as Bishop Agar, long after 
Crowe's death, included that within his wall, being till then on the 
opposite or N. side of the road. The exception, therefore, rather 
confirms than invalidates the conjecture I have made. That nothing 
illegal or dishonourable wajs done in any part of this change of pro- 
perty is evident from his successor, Bishop Maule (who showed 
himself ready enough to blame some part of Crowe's conduct) being 
perfectly satisfied with it. And that Crowe was in the habit of 
doing other things of this kind is also clear from another transaction 
which does appear in the Registry, where the Dean exchanges his 
mensal lands and throws them into the Bishop's garden, accepting 
in their stead another piece of ground at a little distance, which was 
the property of the See.* At any rate, by the management of this 
worthy Prelate, the Bishop of Cloyne is now most comfortably 
situated, and at liberty to extend his plantations and his farm to 
the east and north as far as he pleases, having no land on any 

therefore have been particularly inconvenient (especially filled as it was with cabins) 
to the Bishop, whose garden was nearly surrounded by it To keep the inhabi- 
tants in good humour and prevail on them to submit quietly to the alteration, 
Bishop Johnson had recourse to rather a strong measure, and prevailed on his 
Chapter to allow a part of their church-yard, which once adjoined the Bishop's 
garden on the south, to be turned into a lane which might allow the people a more 
direct access to the Commons. And as the principal end of this lane by Bishop 
Harvey's enclosure of the Commons is now defeated, and the lane itself is an incon- 
venience to the Bishop, it is a pity no Prelate has since contrived to shut up the 
passage entirely, carry the road round the south side of the church, where a passage 
is yet open, and convert the ground to its original use as part of the church-yard. 
John Savage, my old porter, who lived servant with the Bishops Berkeley and 
Stopford, confirms the account of Cornelius that a street led near the barn door 
along the paddock to the Commons, and the old porter's lodge was on the other 
side of this road, being the first house in the street, all which is now taken within 
the walls. The holes and uneven ground in the paddock were caused by the cellars 
of some of the houses in this street. 

* The Prebendary of Cahirultan did the same. See the chapter-book of June, 
1721, confirming the agreement There is still a walk on the S. side of the garden, 
with tall trees on each side, leading from the wall of the Flower garden to the £. 
boundary wall, which is called by the name of the Dean's walk, and was probably 
part of his manse or garden. The large square plot for vegetables on the N. side 
of the garden was Bishop Berkeley's bowling green, and the S. lawn from the 
house to the church door was laid out in the old fashioned way of terraces and 
flights of steps, being the great walk to church. And this S. front was, I believe 
(before Crowe's building), the principal front of the bouse, the carriages driving 
down the avenue of lime trees on the W. side of the court and turning short on the 
left hand to the S. door. 


quarter (the Charity estate of Bohennore excepted) but what belongs 
to himself, and being entirely free from disputes concerning the 
Burgery and interference on the part of foreign landlords in the 
town of Cloyne. 

11. Donogkmore. 

This estate, the most considerable, if we except the demesne and 
lands about Cloyne, which at present belongs to the See, was one of 
its earliest possessions, and was let on lease as a fee farm to the 
O'Helilies (now Helys), at the rate of 65. 8c?. for each plowland, 
who tenanted part, and let out the rest to the chiefs or heads of 
clans in that part of the country, which comprehends the Bogra 
mountains, the wildest and most uncivilized district in the county of 
Cork. This appears to have been done before the great lease of the 
See estates to the Fitzge raids. Bishop Lyon, however, who was 
watchful against all encroachments on the rights of his Bishoprick, 
instituted a suit against the possessors of it, and Lord Muskerry 
consented to take a lease from him, but nothing came of the nego- 
tiation. George Synge, on whom " his mantle fell," renewed the 
suit against the tenants of the whole eighteen plow lands. The 
pleadings which remain on both sides are curious enough. The 
Bishop contends that Pipe Caiman reckons Donoghmore expressly 
as the Bishop of Cloyne's manor, and the lands as his demesne, that 
Bishop Ben net soon after 1500* lived in his manor house there, that 
(the English being in almost every instance lords in chief) the 
O'Helilies, who were Hiberniciy could only have been tenants at will, 
and that the old writings of the See enumerate these O'Helilies 
among those, " qui non de terra Episcopi moveri possint," that is, 
as what the law calls villani or villans. He also contends that the 
Sheriff always accounted to the Bishop for the profits of the manor 
court. The O'Helilies or Helys, on the other hand, mentioned that 
their land was freehold, and had continued in their family for above 
500 years, that the 6*. 8d. for each plowland was for devotion or 
protection merely, that they owed suit and service, not to the church, 
but to Lord Muskerry, and paid composition to the King, which no 
church land ever did. This was in 1639, and Bishop Synge pre- 
vailed so far that one of the 0' Helys came and paid rent, and took 
a lease from the See, delivering up to the Bishop the -celebrated 
iron hand of Bishop Lachteen, which was the symbol of power in 
the manor. The rebellion of 1641, however, put an end to all fur- 
ther suit, and Lord Muskerry kept possession of the lands. Indeed 
the cause' appeared so desperate that the Bishops after the restora- 
tion made no attempt to revive their suit, but contented themselves 
with their chief rent, and let their claim to the estate sleep, till 
Lord Muskerry, engaging in the rebellion of 1688, forfeited it to the 
Crown, who gave it with the other lands of the rebels to the Com- 
missioners of the Forfeited Estates. In 1697 Bishop Pooley, who 

• Bennet was, I think, Bishop from 1522 to 1586. [W. M. B.] 
VOL. III. 2 


never spared trouble or expense to serve his See, prosecuted his claim 
to the estate before the Commissioners, in opposition to that of the 
Macarty family. But as proofs were produced that the Macarties 
held the land in very early times, an original letter of attorney 
from the church to Donogh Macarty to obtain possession being also 
brought forward, the Bishop lost his suit, which the Macarties, how- 
ever, did not gain, the estate being determined to be justly forfeited. 
Pooley next petitioned Parliament to settle the lands as a free gift 
on his church, stating the eighteen plowlands to be worth £400 per 
annum, and all the other property of the See to be worth only £500 ; 
but Parliament refused to take the case into consideration. In 
1 703, Bishop Crowe (the successor of Pooley, who was translated to 
Baphoe) adopted a much better plan, for, having purchased the 
estate of the Commissioners for £4,020, of which he paid £1,340, 
being the first instalment, he obtained an Act of Parliament in the 
same year, excusing the See from paying the rest of the money, and 
settling the manor and lands of Donoghmore as an augmentation of 
the Bishoprick of Cloyne for ever, with a proviso that Bishop Crowe 
and his assigns should receive the emoluments of the estate until he 
was repaid this sum of £1,340, with the usual interest of eight per 

This personal claim, however, occasioned some further degree of 
trouble. So early as 1706, Crowe petitioned the Privy Council to 
enable him to let a lease of the lands for sixty years, as the most 
convenient mode of repayment, but the Council very wisely deter- 
mined they had no such power. He then, it is said, resorted to 
another method of reimbursing himself, by letting the land at a very 
inconsiderable rent and taking large fines, still leaving the £1,340 
as a mortgage upon it, although, in the twenty-three years of his 
episcopate, it appears as if the estate might have worked itself clear 
had the money been borrowed from any other quarter. Bishop 
Maule, his successor, makes heavy complaints on this subject. He 
stated to Government that Mrs. Crowe, his predecessor's widow, 
kept possession of the whole estate of Donoghmore until her £1,340 
was paid, although in fact the fines taken had long ago repaid the 
entire, for Mr. Earbury had given £1,000 to Alderman Crowe for 
the lands of Goulane, containing 1,607 acres, for which he paid the 
See £65 per annum, and let them himself for £204. Mr. Hall also 
had 1,500 acres, at a rent to the See of £72 per annum, but re- 
ceiving himself £220 yearly, for which profit rent he had probably 
paid the Crowe family a sum equal to that paid by Mr. Earbury. 
As Crowe, however, had done nothing in this that was illegal, and 
was fairly borne out by the words of his Act, which allowed him to 
keep the estate until repaid the £1,340 by his successor, without 
limiting him as to taking fines, Maule could make nothing of his case. 
But Lord Carteret, the then Lord Lieutenant, assisted him to get 
another Act passed in the British Parliament, in 1727, by which the 
payment of the £1,340 was to be shared among four successors, 


each losing his part in the nature of the payments on See Houses. 
The Bishops who paid their proportions were Maule, Edward Synge, 
Berkeley, and Stopford. In 1728, Mrs. Crowe, by deed, dated 31st 
August, conveyed to the See of Cloyne, in full right, the whole 
estate of Donoghmore, which has been since enjoyed in peace, and 
produces annually in rent and fines above £700 per annum. 

For the good policy of recovering this estate (one of the best we 
have) at a time when it was in a manner hopeless, for building a 
very comfortable addition to the house at Cloyne, and above all for 
so managing and arranging the Burgery and other intermixed pro- 
perty as to give a resident Bishop every command and convenience 
he could wish, the See has reason to esteem Bishop Crowe as the 
best friend (after George and Edward Synge) that ever sate on its 
episcopal throne. 

12. The College of Youghcd. 

This college was founded in 1464, by Thomas, Earl of Desmond, 
for a Warden, eight fellows, and as many singing men, and was en- 
dowed with many livings and a landed estate of £600 per annum. 
It continued increasing in revenue and patronage, and had the good 
fortune to escape the general plunder at the Reformation. Dr. 
Witherhead (or Wethered,see vol. ii., page 410), who held the War- 
dens!) ip of it in commendam, with his Bis ho prick of Waterford, pre- 
served it for some years ; but the next Warden, Nathaniel Baxter, 
was served, in 1597, with an order from Queen Elizabeth, directing 
him to resign it within forty days to Thomas Southwell, esq., of Nor- 
folk, and Mr. Fitzharris, of Ballycrenane, who had obtained a grant 
of it from her, for the purpose of passing away the lands to them- 
selves and their friends, as had been the case with so many other 
ecclesiastical foundations. 

Dr. Baxter saw the purpose, which they took little pains to con- 
ceal, and supposing it lawful to cheat a robber of his prey, took the 
opportunity of the forty days, summoned his fellows, and passing a 
long lease of the whole college estate to Sir Thomas Norris, Lord 
President of Munster, obeyed strictly the letter of the royal order, 
and resigned his Warden ship, without its revenues, to Fitzharris and 

In a rage, which may be easily conceived, they refused to accept 
of it, and both Baxter and Sir Thomas Norris died before the affair 
was determined. Upon this the fellows elected Dr. Hanmer, who, 
three years after, renewed Norris' lease to Jones, in trust for Sir 
Walter Raleigh, reserving only to themselves the parsonage of Car- 
rigaline and the impropriated rectory of Mallow. Such, however, 
was the facility with which the church was plundered in those days 
that another rapacious courtier, Sir George Carew, " Nil actum re- 
putans dum quid superesset agendum," posted over to London the 
very next year, and obtained a patent for the whole ecclesiastical 
property of the college from James I., by which sweeping grant the 


advowson of Youghal, wbich the Warden had kept for his own 
maintenance, and the two reserved livings were carried after the 

Sir Richard Boyle, the first Earl of Cork, one of the most saga- 
cious men of his day, lived all this time quietly at Youghal, no in- 
attentive observer of the scene passing before him, and when the 
claimants on all these different and discordant grounds began to be 
tired with their disputes, and unable to settle thenf, he stepped 
quietly in and bought up all their titles ; then getting Haumer to 
resign the Wardenship in favour of his relation, Dr. Richard Boyle, 
he obtained from the new Warden and fellows a grant in fee-farm, 
for ever, of all their property, temporal and spiritual, to himself and 
his heirs, including the Warden's house and garden and the site of 
the college itself. 

This monstrous transaction (for such it was on the nice of it) did 
not escape the eye of Lord Strafford ; but nothing was to be done 
while Dr. Boyle, himself a sharer in the delinquency, possessed 
the name of Warden of Youghal with the Bishoprick of Cork, 
Cloyne, and Ross. But as soon as by Boyle's promotion the 
presentation became in the gift of the Crown, the Lord Deputy 
appointed his friend, George Synge, to the Wardenship, to be held 
in c&rnmendam with the See of Cloyne, and then by the Attorney- 
General, Sir William Ryves, called upon the Earl of Cork to show by 
what title he kept back from the Warden the college estates. Lord 
Cork, like an able general, took advantage of every delay the law 
could afford him. He stopped all proceedings dnring Parliament 
by pleading his privilege, asked for day after day to put off the 
hearing, then to produce his papers, and afterwards to amend his 
plea. As the business became more pressing, he gave up Sir George 
Carew's sweeping patent, and resigned the ecclesiastical patronage, 
which, indeed, in those days, was of little value, to the disposal of 
the Crown, and at last, having no refuge left, agreed to submit the 
whole cause to the Lord Deputy's pleasure. Lord Strafford deter- 
mined that he should pay £15,000 to the Crown (a very heavy fine 
in those days) for having illegally enjoyed the estates of the college 
during twenty-six years — that he should resign the living of 
Youghal to the use of the Warden, and the plowland of Ballyma- 
cash to serve by way of a glebe, but allowed him to retain the col- 
lege and the Warden's house, on his giving up another house in 
Youghal to the Warden in its stead. 

Lord Cork resigned the living to Synge without reluctance, but he 
never parted with land while it was in his power to keep it. In a 
remonstrance against this decree of the Council, he artfully observed 
that it was particularly unpleasant to him to give up the estate of 
Ballymacash above all others, because he intended to build a large 
mansion upon it for his own use, and there was not a piece of 
ground in any part of his property that was so convenient as this. 
But the Lord Deputy was as sagacious as he was, and seeing his 




drift, amended the decree so far only as to permit the Earl, upon 
the express condition of putting the Bishop in possession of Bally- 
macash, without delay, to have a power of resuming that plowland, 
on his building a house there, and resigning an estate of equal 
value. The decree did credit to Strafford's foresight, for Lord Cork, 
who never intended to build a house at all, was obliged, for the 
sake of consistency, to appear contented, and, in order to preserve 
bis claim, put Bishop Synge as Warden in immediate possession of 
the land ; but in the very next year, on Lord Strafford's being re- 
called, the first thing the Earl did (1640) was to obtain a fresh 
patent from the Crown, securing himself in full possession of the 
college, and all the rest of its revenues. Under this decree, how- 
ever, the tithes of Youghal parish, which amount to about £500 per 
annum, and the lands of Ballymacash, consisting of about 300 acres, 
much underlet (fine included) at £75 per annum, are still in posses- 
sion of the Warden. The college and Warden's house, both large 
and handsome buildings, have been long since alienated by Lord 
Cork's family, but three smaller tenements (settled, no doubt, in 
lieu of them) go with the Wardenship. The office of Warden, now 
in the gift of the Crown, has been, ever since Lord Strafford's time, 
united as part of its possessions with the See of Cloyne, but the 
only remaining proof of its former large property is its payment to 
the First Fruits of 100 marks (£66), while the Biehoprick itself is 
only rated at ten guineas.

14. The Bog or Commons. 

The situation of Cloyne is on a small elevation, in a valley which 
runs nearly N.E. and S.W. from Cork Harbour to Ballycotton Bay, 
and through this, which is about six miles long, and half a mile in 
breadth, the waters of the harbour seem in early times to have found 
their way to the sea. This, indeed, appears evident from each end 
of the valley being still a marsh for some distance into the land, 
and the low ground in the centre from one of these points to the 
other was for many ages a wet bog, in which the people of Cloyne 
were accustomed to cut their turf, and turn their cattle for pasture 
in summer. The Bishops, however, seem always to have contended 
that, as lords of the manor, they had a right to the soil, and only 
permitted this practice as a favour, while the inhabitants were in 
the habit on their side of claiming it as their due. 

With a view to this dispute, Mr. Fitzgerald, of Ballyfin, seems to 
have insisted, in his very suspicious testimony, that Ruane, Monoclo- 
hane, and Monolusky were the ancient Commons of Cloyne. (See 
page 1). And Bishop George Synge, in 1640, had no sooner begun 
to establish the rights of his See than the Burgesses of Cloyne peti- 
tioned the Lord President of Munster against him as encroaching 


on their rights of Common. Fields and closes, however, appear to 
have been made on parte of the Commons by succeeding prelates ; 
and Bishop Crowe, in 1711, called his neighbour, Colonel Corker, of 
Bally maloe, before the House of Lords for cutting turf on the bog, 
and encouraging others to do so ; and the Committee of the House 
determined unanimously that the Bishop of Cloyne had made out an 
undoubted possession of the bog of Cloyne in his Lordship and his 
predecessors. Bishop Edward Synge, 1731, had disputes of the 
same nature, and the supposed right of Common, both in digging 
turf and depasturing cattle, had by this time become a serious 
grievance both to the Bishop and the country. For not only a large 
tract of ground on his estate was thus left unimproved, and covered 
with stagnant water, which tended to fill the town and country with 
various diseases, but (Commons in Ireland being very few in num- 
ber) the lawless people from every part of the kingdom were invited 
to settle in the town, from the facility with which they plundered 
the whole country of their cattle, and drove them on the Common, 
where they eluded or resisted the 6earch of their owners. It was 
not until 1767, that a young man of family and spirit, Bishop Her- 
vey, afterwards Earl of Bristol, determined to strike at the root of 
the evil, by inclosing the remains of the Commons, and draining and 
dividing it into farms. The expense, trouble, and danger he in- 
curred by this spirited resolution was not a little. The people, led 
on by the Casey family, made a common purse, and brought actions 
against him on all sides. His gates were burned and his fences 
levelled as he raised them, and he was attacked with vollies of 
stones when he ventured out of the palace gates. He persevered, 
however, with much firmness, and succeeded. The cause was 
brought to a hearing at the Cork Assizes, in 1768, and after a very 
long trial, which lasted from morning until night, the right of the 
See of Cloyne to the Bog or Commons was fully and finally estab- 

Bishop Hervey, under the Act which allows benefits to the im- 
provers of unprofitable lands, let this Common, now containing 279 
acres, being inclosed and drained, for forty years, from 1767, reserv- 
ing a rent to the See of £41, and a profit rent to himself of £150, 
which has been since gradually increasing, for the land is now in 
many parts in a very high state of cultivation, and is worth, one 
acre with another, between £M and £3 per acre. This estate has 
been since sold to Mr. Biggs, and the Hervey lease, expiring in 
1807, is renewed annually by him, like the other See estates. 

15. The Bishop 9 s House and Demesne, 

The Castle of Cloyne, which was situated at the S.E. angle of the 
four cross-ways in the centre of the town, seems to have been the 
original manor-house of the Bishop, until Bishop Shehan alienated 
it to Sir John Fitzgerald, who, in consequence, assigned to the 
Bishop another tenement on or near the site of the present See 


House. At least, this will account well for that part of Mr. Fitz- 
gerald's evidence that the Bishop's house used to be in Irish- 
street, but that of late, in the last Sir John's time, they got one in 
English-street. The Pacata Hibernia, too, calls the house of Sir 
John, at which Lord Mountjoy slept in 1601, the manor-house of 
the See, let to him in fee-farm ; and it is a strong presumptive 
proof of this that when, by BrambaU's award, the castle, with the 
gardens and orchards thereunto belonging, and 600 acres of demesne 
as near to it as could be found, were assigned to the Bishop, Sir John 
Fitzgerald submitted to the decree, never once stating, as he cer- 
tainly would have done else, that the Castle was the residence of his 
family, and had never belonged to the Bishop at all. Of this Castle, 
however, Bishop George Synge certainly obtained possession, and 
here, when the See was separated from Cork, it is not improbable 
that the Bishops Sheridan, Jones, Palliser, Pull en, and Ash, may 
have resided. In the year 1700, Bishop Pooley, finding the Castle 
to be old and inconvenient, repaired or built the present See House ; 
and in 1797, the walls of the ancient castle being cracked, and 
opened from* top to bottom, and becoming not only ruinous but dan- 
gerous, the then Bishop allowed it to be taken down, and two hand- 
some-looking tenements have been raised on its site. 

Whether the house now inhabited by the Bishops of Cloyne was 
repaired or rebuilt by Pooley is matter of doubt ; but I am in- 
clined to believe the former, first, from the circumstance of a 
large building appearing on the site in what is called the Down 
Survey, which was taken in 1653 by Sir William Petty, which is 
evidently distinguished in that map from the old Castle ; secondly, 
from the thick walls and massy stones* still existing in the south 
part of it which pointed at a style of building much more ancient 
than Pooley's times, and which, when repaired and new windows 
put in it by Bishop Bennet, in 1796, discovered clefts in the walls 
and other marks of high antiquity ; and thirdly, because in level- 
ling the street in 1802, a large paved court and square of offices 
appeared, all memory of which had been forgotten, and which un- 
doubtedly was once connected with it 

I am therefore led, on the whole, to conjecture that the old Castle 
was the Bishop's Manor House ; and the present See House is that 
which was the residence of old Master Fitzgerald before and, it may 
be, some time after that event. 

It appears from the Down Survey, that Cloyue had several of 
those stone Castles common in all old Irish towns, such as Callan, 

* Many stones of this kind, removed at the repairs in 1796, were so heavy as to 
require six or eight men to lift them. Subsequently, in 1813, it was made clear 
to a demonstration that the Fitzgeralds inhabited the house long before Pooley's 
time, both by the stone inscribed I. 6. £., with the date 1578 (see page 3, note), and 
also by an arched door of much higher antiquity, with a similar inscription, which 
proves this to have been an entrance into a place of worship, either the chapel of the 
Fitzgerald family or that of the Nunnery, supposed to have existed a little W. of 
this house. 


Kelta, Kiimallock, Carlingford, <fec, one of which was a little to the 
£. of the present house, on or near the site of the garden-house, 
and other offices which were built by Bishop Woodward. The map 
shows it to have been a different building from either the ancient or 
modern house, but no trace of it exists at present even in tradition. 
Possibly it may have been destroyed in Bishop Pooley's time, and 
the materials used in his repair of the See House, being so con- 
veniently at hand for that purpose. 

The oldest part of this house (which Pooley repaired in 1700) 
existing at present is the lower part of the S. W. half of the W. front, 
opening into what is called the Bishop's Court, where the old arch 
mentioned above was found, and that part of the south front which 
contains the housekeeper's room with the small rooms adjoining, aiid 
the bed-room, dressing-rooms, Ac, now used by the Bishop, over it, 
with the passage running north to and including the great staircase. 
Then commences the part which Bishop Crowe added, 1715, which 
he calls, by a figure, his New House, and for which he charged the 
See £1,200. This comprehends the whole north front, consisting of 
the present dining-room and study (in which last the £. window 
was added by Bishop Hervey), and the bed-rooms over it, which 
were finished by Bishop Stopford. The coved drawing-room on the 
west was made by Bishop Johnson, and to it Bishop Sennet joined 
the little south drawing-room (used previously as a bed-chamber), 
and added the balcony and way from thence into the garden.* The 
600 acres laid out for the Bishop's demesne were chiefly on the W. 
side of the town, extending to Lord Longueville's Park wall at 
Castle Mary, and these, though convenient enough to the old Castle, 
becoming too distant from the New House, and Crowe by his arrange- 
ments about the Burgery having removed the cabins and other 
nuisances to the eastward, Bishop Stopford exchanged those lands 
(by leave of his Metropolitan) for the present paddock and demesne, 
which he reduced to 400 acres under the Act allowing all Bishops, 
whose demesne exceeded that number of acres, to lease the superfluous 

* Among other improvements made at different times, Bishop Maule, in 1728, 
laid out £1 60 for out-offices. Bishop Stopford raised the present front attics at an 
expense of £316, in 1754, previously to which time the family of the Bishop (and 
in particular that of Bishop Berkeley, who kept much company) lived principally 
in the rooms on the ground floor, near the garden. In 1764 the paddock was in- 
closed at cost of £148. The old brew-house was turned into a kitchen in 1765 for 
£180. In 1772, at a cost of £272, the great court in front was formed and the 
street wall built by Bjahop Agar, who also removed the road farther from the 
house. The wash-house and other offices (except the barn) to the E. were raised 
by Bishop Woodward, about 1790, at cost of £870. Bishop Bennet, in 1802, made 
the green-house, and restored the avenue in front of the house, which was stopped 
up with old walls and potato gardens, and fell into his hands, 1807. He also, in 
1813, rebuilt the kitchen and eastern offices from the ground, with the bed-chambers 
over them, adding the back stairs, porter's lodge, and many other conveniences, at 
the expense of £2,000. 

Crowe's K. front of the house, before Bishop Stopford made the bed-chambers, 
ended in a parapet wall with four images on it For other particulars of the See 
House, &c, vide note at foot of page 18. 


ground under the usual terms. Bishop Stopford let to his own 
family on very profitable terms sixty acres of the old demesne, which 
is uncommonly fine land, and to the right of the road to Castlemary, 
and this has since been sold to the Caseys. Stopford, however, died 
before he could complete his whole plan, and so the trouble of in- 
closing and arranging the new demesne to the eastward fell on 
Bishop Johnson, his successor, in 1758. Ten years afterwards, 
Bishop Agar found most of it in a very neglected and unprofitable 
state; but, being young and of a very active mind, he expended a 
considerable sum in improving the land, turning the roads which 
still encroached on the house to the N. and E., and planting part of 
his hedge-rows. Bishop Woodward continued the same good work 
with equal spirit, building the barn and stables on E. end of the 
Court, planting the whole north side of Gromeen in a very handsome 
style, and designing and planting the Rock shrubbery round the 
cave, a spot which ought always to be esteemed as classic ground, 
being the favourite walk of Bishop Berkeley. In order to preserve 
it still more, Bishop Ben net, 1796, surrounded this plantation by a 
wall, and extended it round the whole of the Rock meadow. The 
ancient elms in the Court formed part of what is called the Bishop's 
Avenue, and reached to a considerable distance on the other side of 
the road. They are supposed to have been planted by Bishop 
Crowe, as those in the church-yard were by Dean (afterwards Bishop) 
Maule, about 1721. The very ancient ash, certainly many hundred 
years old, and firmly believed by the common people to have been 
planted by St. Coleman himself, was blown down in a violent gale 
of wind, being decayed to the very heart, in 1798, and a new 
one was planted on the spot in 1799. Crowe, who was a great 
improver, is supposed to have planted also the screens in the 
garden, although the present wall was raised by Johnson in 1761. 
The garden itself owes its present form, which has great merit, 
principally to Bishop Agar, though his successors (Chinnery ex- 
cepted, who was subject to ill-health,) have made many minor im- 
provements. It is of great importance to keep up a succession of 
trees in the eastern screen, which protects and warms the whole. 
Bishop Woodward had built a small cottage on Grogan's-hill for the 
sake of the view, and sometimes breakfasted there, but it was ruined 
in the rebellion of 1798. Bishop Bonnet, his successor, raised a 
turret to answer the same purpose on a more commanding spot in 
the North Tent field.

17. Rental of the See. 

The See of Cloyne appears to have been originally endowed in a 
manner sufficiently ample. For men's estates in those unsettled 
times had their principal security in being considered as the pro- 


perty of the Church, and it, therefore, became a practice among the 
landowners in the neighbourhood to admit the title of the See, and 
pay certain small rents to the Bishop, as their chief. These head 
rents, however, though extended over a considerable tract of country, 
being fixed and invariable, became by the change of times inadequate 
to the support of the church, so that, in the year 1440, Pope Martin 
V. found it necessary to unite this See to that of Cork. Bishop 
Tirry, who held the two Bishopricks at the Reformation, was un- 
doubtedly a Catholic, as were his three immediate successors, Skiddy, 
Dixon, and Shehan. Bishop Lyon, who was consecrated in 1583, 
is allowed to have been the first Protestant Bishop. The estate of 
Cork suffered considerably, as might be expected, from the plunderers 
of the time ; but that of Cloyne, being without a resident guardian, 
and held for four successors by prelates careless, if not hostile, to the 
interests of the rising church, was granted entirely away to the 
Fitzgeralds and other great men of the country, so that it was 
termed (as we observed) in derision " the Bishoprick of five marks." 
Had Lord Strafford remained a little time longer in the Government, 
this disgrace would hare been quickly and entirely removed ; but 
the Rebellion breaking out before the Bishop was confirmed in his 
new restored estates, and every art of law as well as every exertion 
of power being put in practice to prevent such as held the See after 
him from proceeding with the same success, it was not without 

freat difficulty that Cloyne was prevented from sharing the fate of 
ismore and Kilmacduagh. In spite of every effort, it became neces- 
sary at last, for the Bishop in possession to petition the Crown that 
he might be allowed to hold some commendam with his See, in order 
to support the dignity of his rank and situation. By the rental 
delivered for this purpose in 1697 to the Lord Lieutenant, the in- 
come of the Bishoprick is stated at that time to have been as 
follows : —

ditto of Rathcoursie, £4.

It is to be observed that in this statement neither the impropri- 
ation of Killowillan, now worth about £30 per annum, nor the fines 
on Ballycotton, Ballybreuagh, <fec, <fec, are mentioned. 

In 1703, when Bishop Crowe had succeeded Pooley, and the 
revenues ought to have received some considerable increase by the 
falling in of Lord Inchiquin's long lease, the rental is still said to be 
not much over £500 per annum.

This is at best a dark statement. It is impossible to know what 
particulars are included in the 5th or 8th article, nor why some 
estates should be specified and others not, as also whether the fines 
or even the livings are included or no. It was also evidently drawn 
up to serve the purpose of influencing the Commissioners and Lord 
Lieutenant to permit the Act of Parliament to pass, settling the 
estate of Donoghmore on the See, and excusing the heavy payment 
of £2,740, which was due to the Crown for the rest of the purchase- 
money. The estates of the Bishoprick continued to increase with 
the increasing prosperity of Ireland. Bishop Crowe, at his death, 
in 1726, charged them with £1,200 for improvements, and must, 
therefore, have been able to prove them to be worth £800 per annum 
at that time. In a commission issued in 1728, to estimate the sum 
of £160 laid out by Bishop Maule in out-houses and other necessary 
build i off 8 (supposed to have been the Western Stables), the See is 
certified to be worth £1,250 per annum. Bishop Johnson in his 
memorial to his Metropolitan, in 1762, values the Cloyne estates at 
£1,500 per annum, and Bishop Agar, in 1778, estimates them at 
above £3,000.

This, though a considerable rise, was occasioned by the intelli- 
gence of the possessor, who increased the fines and rents of most of 
the estates, and«particularly improved the Demesne lands, which, in 
1697, produced no more than £50, and, in 1750, about £200 per 

The rise, however, did not stop here ; Bishop Bennet estimated 
it thus, in a few years after —

Since the date of this, the ecclesiastial rents have increased so 
much that the living of Aghada is generally valued at £3,000 per 
annum, and produced in one year £3,700. 

18. Quit- Rent* and other Payments. 

The Crown, when granting out the lands which had fallen to it 
by the rebellions of 1641 and 1688, generally reserved a small pay- 
ment under the name of a Quit-Rent; but in such estates as could 
be proved to have belonged anciently to any Bishoprick, the King 
restored the lands, and exonerated the See from all demands. The 
onus probandi, as may be supposed, fell on the Bishop, and Edward 
Jones, in 1684, exerted himself much in this business in favour of 
Cloyne, getting among others the Quit-Rent excused from Ballybre- 
nagh of £2 8*. 6tf., of Ballycannane of £3 5*., and from Killinemery 
of £3 15s. id. The failure of Bishop Pooley's attempt to prove 
Donaghmore to have been held from the Church, loaded that estate 
with a heavy rent, which the See pays at present, of £20 Is. 9rf. for 


Cool i key, of £2 Us. lOd. for Ballygerihy, and of 16*. 3d. for Goul- 
anes. The Union of Aghada pays to the Crown in the same manner 
for the restitution of its tythes £3 Is. 5\d., and Rostillan which is 
a member of it (having once belonged to Mourn e Abbey) is charged, 
besides, with 15*. The first of these is payable at Youghal, and the 
other at Mallow, and as they are both charged in the Crown Office 
under the name of Aghada, it requires some attention to understand 
this double demand, the nature of which the Collectors themselves 
are ignorant of. I have, however, satisfied myself that they are right. 
The Burgery is also charged at Youghal, with the sum of £1 1*. 2\d. 
If to these outgoings from the See we add the annual payment 
of £26 for the Burgery to the Archbishoprick of Dublin, which is in 
the nature of a Quit Rent, and £1 4*. for a part of the paddock to the 
Trustees of Bishop Crowe's Charity, with the present allowance to 
the Curates of Aghada and Youghal, the whole account will stand 
thus :—

19. State of the Diocese of Cloyne in 1813. 

The Diocese contains 88 benefices, 48 churches, about 52 beneficed 
and 20 unbeneficed clergy. In 1800 there were but 10 glebe- 
houses, namely, Clonmell, Midleton, Rathconnack, Donoghmore, 
Magourney, Iniscarra, Agbine, Macromp, Kil worth, and Pharihay ; 
and of the ten, two only were good houses, viz., Clonmell and Mid- 
leton. Since 1800, glebe-houses have been built at Kilmahon, 
Garrycloyne, Brigowne, Glanworth, Killeagh, Clondrohid, Magour- 
ney, CasUemartyr, Iniscarra, Kilnemartery, Aghina, Aghada, New- 
market, Kanturk, Pharihay, and Castlemagnen

In 1705, the number of popish clergy in the county Cork was re- 
turned to the Privy Council as 43. 

The Bishop of Cloyne, in 1711, obtained an Act of Parliament to 
build churches at Aghada, Castlemartyr, and Garrycloyne, when, I 
presume, the churches now existing at the two last of these places 
were erected. The first was rebuilt, 1813, the second is in good re- 
pair, the last was suffered to go to ruin by the Jeffreys family, in 
order to get a church built at Blarney, which is now itself in a di- 
lapidated state. Clondrohid was built, 1772. 

By a return made to Parliament in 1731, it appears there were 
then in the Diocese of Cloyne 44 churches, and 14,200 Protestant 
inhabitants, while there were no less than 70 Mass-houses, 92 Priests, 
and 80,500 Popish inhabitants ; and on examining the papers in 
the Registry, on which this return is grounded, 1 find the Rector of 
Mallow was guilty of a very gross mistake, which increased the 
number of the Protestants in his parish and diminished that of the 
Papists to a very considerable degree ; so that instead of above five 
to one, which this computation makes it, there is more reason to 
conclude the proportion on the side of the Papists to be at least six 
to one. In 1786, Mr. Bushe, of the Revenue, by his calculation 
from the Hearth money-books, which I should suppose, for many 
reasons, better authority than the enumeration by the Clergy, as 
this last is liable to peculiar difficulties, makes the difference in the 
City of Cork two to one, and in the County not less than eight to 
one. Indeed, I am inclined to think the proportion has increased 
of late rather than diminished in Cloyne. The Protestants, living 
chiefly in large towns, employed as manufacturers, marrying late, 
are less prolific, while the Popish labourers in the country, for the 
very opposite reasons, are always surrounded with a numerous family. 
The arts also of the Priests to increase their congregations, espe- 
cially in the case of intermarriages with Protestants, are often very 

The living of Ardagh contained in Bishop Maule's time five 
families of Protestants ; it has now ouly one. Clon priest had in 
Maule's time no less than ten families ; now only four. 

Before the settlement of the great tythes on the Cloyne vicarages 
(20 Charles II., 1689), and before the corn bounties, erection of mills, 
and other favourable circumstances had turned the minds of the 
farmers from grazing to tillage, the incomes of the Clergy were 
miserable in the extreme. Youghal was let for only £44 per annum; 
Kil worth was worth only £9 ; Mallow was obliged to be supported 
out of the economy of Cloyne ; but the increase of the Church 
revenue in the South of Ireland has been so rapid from the above- 
mentioned causes that the Bishop is now the patron of one living of 
£2,400 per annum, one of £2,000, two of £1,500, and six of £1,000 
each, besides other considerable preferments of inferior value, 
forming one of the best patronages in his Majesty's dominions.

All the Episcopal and Capitular Seals of the Diocese have been 
engraved in Caulfield'b Sigilla Eccles. Hibem. 

There is very little to be found in antient writers concerning the 
Foundation of this Cathedral, yet it is generally ascribed to St. 
Barr, in the seventh century. Gilla JSda O'Mugin, Bishop of Cork, 
and his next successors, Gregory and Reginald, are enumerated among 
the principal Benefactors to this Church. By length of Time, and 
the incominodities attending old Age, it greatly fell into decay and 
ruin ; and hath been lately rebuilt from the Foundation, not at the 
expense of any particular Person, or the voluntary contributions of 
the Inhabitants, but by a Parliamentary Tax, laid on all Coals con- 
sumed within the City of Cork. It is built after the Dorick Order, 
and hath a very handsome Venetian window at the East end. In 
the Church -yard stands an old Steeple, a little detached from the 
Church, which some think was the work of the Ostmen of Cork, and 
first used by them for a Watch-Tower. There is an intention of 
building a new Steeple intirely, and of raising a noble Portico at 
the West end of the Church. In Ptolomey's time the Coriondi inha- 
bited this tract of the Country. The word Cork, formerly called 
great Cork, seems yet to retain some Footsteps of the name of that 
People, unless one would choose to derive it from the Irish word 
Corcac, which importeth a marshy place (or from Coirc, whioh sig- 
nified Oats, the soil thereabouts being barren, and without cultiva- 
tion, productive of little Grain of any sort. It should be observed 
here, that it was very common among the antient Irish to change 
the letter c in the end of a word into an aspirate, and sometimes 
also in the beginning of a word. [Ware.] 

VOL. III. d 


Succession of Bishops. 

606) to 623 '? St. Babe, by some called Finbabr, or Barr tlie While, 
and at his Baptism Lochah, a Native of Connaught, was the 
first Bishop of Cork, where he founded a Cathedral in the 
beginning of the seventh Century ; and having sat seventeen 
years, or, as some say, only seven, he, in the midst of his 
Friends, calmly submitted to Death, on the 25th of September, 
at Cloyne, about fifteen miles distant from Cork. It is no 
easy matter to fix the year of his death, but he flourished 
about the year 630 (Usher, Index, Chron. p. 1129), and was 
Preceptor to Colman, the Founder and first Bishop of the 
Church of Cloyne. (This is an error, for St Colman died in 
1604). His liody was afterwards conveyed to Cork, and there 
honourably interred in his own Church. His bones were, I 
cannot tell how long after, deposited in a Silver Case. That 
Epistle, (Ware's Antiq., chap. 29), concerning the Ceremonies 
ot Baptism, which is ascribed to Alcuin, is the performance of 
this Saitft, if anv credit may be given to Dempster. [Ware.] 
St Barr is said to have been removed to the Bishoprick of 
Cork from a cell at Gougan Barry, in the parish of Irichi- 
geeiagh, in Cork diocese. [Downes' Tour.] 

It must be confessed we have but very slender accounts of 
the successors of St. Barr until the arrival of the English. The 
following are mentioned by our Historians :— 

. St. Nbssan, a Disciple, of St Barr, was. educated under him 
at a School [or Monastery, founded by that Bishop], near. Longh 
Eire "To which, as to the Habitation of Wisdom, and the 
Sanctuary of all Christian Virtues, such Numbers of Disciples 
flocked from all parts, that it changed a Desert, as it were, into 
a large City," as the writer (Colgan, Acta Sanctorum) of the 
Life of St Barr says. I take this Lake, called by the name of 
Lough-Eire, to be that hollow or Basin, in which a great part 
of the City of Cork now stands ; and which the industry of the 
Inhabitants hath from time to time reclaimed and built on. It 
is described by the writer (Colgan) of the Life of St Talmach 
to stand in the South and Maritime parts of Munster ; and the 
Life of St Barr, before mentioned, acquaints us, that he built 
a Monastery, and made a Settlement near this Lough. To the 
fame and reputation of this first Bishop of Cork that City, for 
what appears in History, is indebted for its original. The 
Festival of St Nessan is celebrated at Cork on the 17th of 
March [and on the first of December (Callend Oassil). But I 
find no account of the year in which he died. [Ware.] 
685. Eusbik, the son of Lappain, Comorban of St Barr, is men- 
tioned in the Annals of the Four Masters to have died on 7th 
April, 685. Colgan (Act Sanct, p. 15*0, note 28), is just in 
his observation, that the Comorban, or Successor of St Barr, 


and the Bishop of Cork, are tlio same thing, because St. Barr 

founded an Episcopal See and Abby there. [Harris.]

1107. Maolothod O'Hailgenen died. [Ware.] 

1111. Patrick O'Selbac died. [Ware.] 

The See of Cork was vacant about the year 1140 ; and then 
" a certain poor man, who was a foreigner (as St Bernard says) 
but a Man of Sanctity and Learning, was, by Malachy, Arch- 
bishop of Armagh, nominated Bishop, and sent to that See, 
with the approbation and applause of the Clergy and People." 
Yet the name of this Bishop is not there mentioned. [Ware.] 

1152. Gilla-JEda O'Mugin, a native of Conanght, and Abbot of the 
Monastery of St. Finbarr's Cave, near Cork, assisted at the 
Synod held at Eel Is, under Cardinal John Paparo, Legate a 
latere to the Pope, and Christian O'Coiiarchy, Bishop of Lis- 
more, the other Legate, a.d. 1152. [Keating (part 2, p. 104), 
calls this Prelate Gilla-Aodh O'Heyn.] He died in 1172, and 
was highly celebrated by the Irish Historians for his many 
virtues. Some (Annals, Lei list, ad. an. 1172), call him the 
Chief Prelate for devotion, wisdom, and chastity in all Ireland. 
That he was sanctified by God above, and was (Anon. Ann., 
ad. an. 1172) a Man full of God's Blessing. The Abby of 
Augurtm, Canons of the Cave of St. Finbarr, commonly called 
Gille-Abby, took its name from this Bishop, who is also reck- 
oned among the principal Benefactors of the Church of Cork. 

1172. Gregory succeeded. He granted to the Abby of Thomas 
Court, near Dublin, the church of St. Nessan at Cork. This 

VOL. III. d 2 


Neesan was a disciple of St Barr, the first Bishop of Cork. 
[Ware.] He granted, along with the above church of St Nes- 
san or St Nicholas, certain lands, tithes, and other offerings, 
upon payment of a cask of wine annually ; and if any person 
should steal any of the wine, the Bishop devotes him to perdi- 
tion. [King's Collections.] This grant was confirmed by the 
Archdeacon under his seal. [Cotton.] • 

He governed the See of Cork about 14 years. [Ware.] 

During the time of this Bishop a grant and new charter was 
given to St. Finn-Barfs or Gill Abbey. The Latin copy of this 
charter is in the British Museum. [Additional MSS., 4,793, 
fol. 05."] The following translation of it is taken from Gibson's 
History of Cork, vol. ii., p. 348 : — 

"The Charter of Dermot* King of Munster, Touching the 
Church of St John of Cork. [Archdall informs us that the 
abbey of St. Barr, or Gill Abbey, was reformed for regular 
canons, under the invocation of St. John the Baptist, by Oor- 
mac, King of Cork.] " Dermot, under favour of Divine Provi- 
dence, King of Munster, to all the faithful of the people, as 
future, greeting and peace for ever. 

" Being well persuaded of the fleeting nature of human me- 
mory, and of the unstable pomp of a perishable world, we have 
therefore deemed it worthy to record in writing the affectionate 
zeal with which one Father Cormac, of blessed memory, King 
of Munster, built and confided to the protection of his people, 
the Church of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist at Cork, for 
the use of Archbishop Maurice and his successors, and for the 
pilgrims out of Connaught, the compatriots of St Barry, /.nd 
now, having succeeded to our paternal kingdom, relying upon 
the Divine assistance, we have undertaken, for the health of 
our soul, and of the souls of our parents, to defend the said 
church in such manner as it become th royal munificence to do, 
and to re-edify and enlarge the same in honor of the saints, 
under whose, protection the said place is known to be : Be it 
therefore known to all the faithful, that we do confirm, for. all 
time to come to the said foundation, all that the said place now 
justly possesses, either by the paternal donation, or by the 
grants of other Kings ; for my glorious father, the King, be- 
stowed upon the said place Lysnoldarh, and Diarmid O'Connor 
endowed it with .AiUina Carrigh. 

"And he it known, furthermore, that we have ourselves 
granted to the said pilgrims the lands of Ilia, and by this our 
charter do confirm the same ; and our illustrious son, Cormac, 
at the request of Catholicus, Archbishop of Tuam, granted in 
perpetuity to God and St. John, the lands of Maeldulgi, for the 
health of his soul and ours, to be enjoyed freely and without 
molestation, and exempt from all secular services, which grant 
of said lands we also hereby confirm. . 


"Now, finally, we do take under our protection the said 
monastery, with the aforesaid lands, which we exempt from all 
secular charge, and yield freely and peaceably to God for all 
time to come. And lest at any time any one should presume 
to call in question the truth of those former grants, or of this 
our present grant, we have authenticated this charter with the 
impression of our seal, and delivered it, in the presence of 
fitting witnesses, to the pil of Con naught, to be preserved. 
" The witnesses are the following, of clergy and people : — 
" Christian, Bishop of Lismore, and Legate of the Apostolic 

Donat, Archbishop of Cashel. 

Gregory, Bishop of Cork. 

Bricius, Bishop of Limerick. 

Benedict, Bishop of Boss. 

Mathew, Bishop of Cloyne. 

Donat, Abbot of Mayo. 

Gregory, Abbot of Cong. 

Eugene, Bishop of Ardmore." 
1186? Reginald Succeeded; but I have not discovered either the 
Time of his Consecration or the Time of his death. [Ware.] 
He is supposed by Cotton to have been Archdeacon of Cork, 
under his predecessor in the See. He died in 1204. [Four 
1205. I find mention made in the Annals of Inisfall, under the year 
1205, of the Death of one O'Selbaic, Bishop of Cork. I can- 
not but be of opinion that Reginald, before mentioned, and he 
were one and the same Person. Whoever was Bishop in 1199 
obtained at that time from Pope Innocent the third a Confir- 
mation of all the possessions of the See of Cork, a Catalogue of 
which may be seen iu the Decretal Epistles of that Pope. 
1215. I find no account of the next Successor : But during the 
vacancy of the See, a.d. 1215, King Henry the III. endeavoured 
to advance Geffry Wiiite to it, in whose favour he writ Let- 
ters to the Archbishops of Dublin and Cnshell, and therein stiles 
him "a learned, provident, and honest man." But it doth not 
appear whether he were consecrated or not. [Ware.] 
12 — ? Marian O'Brien was, by Papal Provision, advanced to the 
See of Cork, and was afterwards translated to Cash ell, in 1224. 
He is called Maurice, in the Records of the Tower of London 
(Pat. 8. Hen. III. Mem. 4), where it is also said, that at the 
Pope's instance he obtained the Royal Assent to his translation 
on the 25th of August, 1224. [Ware.] 
1225. On the 15th of June, 1225. Gilbert, Archdeacon of Cork, ob- 
tained the Royal Assent, and before the end of that year was 
consecrated. He died about the year 1238. [Ware.] The 
year before his Death, this Prelate, by the Assent of bis Chap- 


ter, granted in Fee-Farm to Michael de Druelle, one Plowland, 
part of the Possessions of bis See, lying between Kilmahollock 
and the Lands of Dufglay, to hold of God and St. Barr, and of 
him and his Successors, at the Bent of Sixteen Pence. [Kfng's 
Collect., p. 103.] 
1238. Laubbhob, who succeeded, died in 1264. Afterwards, on the 
27th of March, 1265, King Henry the third granted a Licence 
to the Dean and Chapter of Cork to proceed to an Election. 

1266. William, of Jebjbpont, called in the publick Records (Rot. 
Pat. 51. Hen. III. mem. 34. intas) William of Kilkenny, a 
Cistertian Monk of the Abby of Jerepont, in the county of Kil- 
kenny, was restored to the Temporalities of this See on the 28th 
of November, 1266, having been confirmed by the Pope's Le- 
gate, and so certified to the King, who accepted of that Confir- 
mation. But it is doubtful with me whether he were ever 
consecrated : If he were, it is certain he sat a very short time ; 
for I find that one Reginald, the year following, obtained this 
Bishoprick. [Ware.] 

1267. Reginald, Treasurer of Cashell, obtained Restitution of the 
Temporalities of this See on the 5th of August, 1267. He died 
at Cork, in October, 1276, and was buried there, in the Cathe- 
dral of St. Barr [Ware], a.d. 1270. Prince Edward, then Lord of 
Ireland, by Donation from his father, King Henry the III. granted 
[Pat. Rot. 54. Hen. III.] to this Prelate and to his Successors. 
" for the Relief and Amendment of the State of the Church of 
Cork/ 1 as the Record saith, the right of Patronage and Ad vow- 
eon of the Churches of the Blessed Virgin of Nard and Kilma- 
hanock, as also of the Chappel of St. Peter, at Cork, to hold 
in Frank-almoigne, dated the 20th of May, that year. But we 
shall see under his Successor, that these Advowsons were after- 
wards recovered to the Crown by the same Prince, when he 
mounted the Throne. [Harris.] 

1277. Riohabd Mao-Donogh, a Cistertian Monk of great Learning, 
succeeded in 1277, and was restored to the Temporalities on 
the 11th of January, that year. He sat 24 years, and died on 
the 7th of March, 1301/2. [Ware and Harris.] KB.—- Ware 
calls his name Robert, but 1 have changed it to Richard, on 
the authority of the document (quoted in vol i., page 252), con- 
cerning this Bishop's grant to the Prebendaries of Cork. [W. 

M'Donnogh, Bp. of Cork, and a gray Monk, died 1302. 
[Annals of Loughkee.] 

This Bishop, in 1692, was, at two several times, fined £130, 
for presuming to hold Pleas in the Ecclesiastical Courts for 
matters belonging to the King's Crown, part of which was 
levied by Exchequer Process. But he found Relief as to the 
Remainder from the King's Mercy, who, by Writ [Rot Pat. 


claus. 20. Edw. I. mem. 13.], dated tbe let of December, the 
same year, pardoned him £84 14*. 2d., and ordered the 
Treasurer and Barons of the Exchequer to give him & Quie- 
tus for the same. 

In the year 1299, King Edward the 1st recovered against 
this Prelate by Writ [Rot Pat- 27. Edw. L] of Bight of Ad- 
vowson, the Patronages of the Churches of St Mary of Nard, in 
the Suburbs of Cork ; of the Church of Kilmahanock, Nochyn- 
vall, and that of St Peter's, of Dungarvan, in the Suburbs of 
that City. The Bishop's defence as to the Advowsons of St 
Mary of Nard, Kilmahanock, and St Peter's, was through a 
grant made of the said Advowsons by tbe King, while he was 
Prince, in the life of his Father (after his Father had made to 
him the Donation of Ireland) to Reginald, Predecessor of this 
Bishop and his Successors, as may be seen in the Life of Regi- 
nald. But Judgment was given against him, because King 
Edward at the time he made the Grant, had no Right in the 
said Advowsons, his Father (King Henry) being then alive ; 
and he (King Edward), having at that time nothing in Ireland 
but by the gift of his Father : Which proves, that notwith- 
standing the King's Donation of Ireland to the Prince, yet that 
the Sovereignty of it continued! in the King; and that the 
Prince was only in the Nature of a Viceroy or Lord Lieuten- 
ant As to the Church of Nochynval, judgment was given 
against the Bishop by default [Harris. J 

1302. John Mac-Cabwill, or O-Cabboll, Dean of Cork, being 
unanimously elected by the Chapter, obtained the Royal Assent 
on the 12th of June, 1302 ; and the same day had his Writ of 
Restitution to the Temporalities, and the Confirmation of the 
Archbishop of Cashell, m July following. He was translated 
from this See to tbe Bishoprick of Meath, by Pope John the 
XXII., in 1321 or 1320, and afterwards to the Archbishoprick 
of Cashell, in 1327. [Ware, and Rot. Pat 30. Edwd. I.] 

1321. Philip of Slanb succeeded. He took his Name from the 
Place of his Birth, which was at Slane, in Meath. He was a 
Dominican Friar, and having obtained a Provision from the 
Pope, was restored to the Temporalities of this See on the 17th 
of July, 1321. Three [Rym. Tom. 4. p. 53.] years after ho 
was sent in Embassy to the Pope by King Edward the Second, 
and discharged his Commission with such address, that after 
his return he was called into the Privy Council of Ireland. 

The Business with which he was intrusted to the Pope is 
only mentioned in general terms, vie., the Reformation of tbe 
Ecclesiastical State of Ireland. But the Pope armed this Pre- 
late, together with the Archbishops of Dublin and Cashell, with 
a Commission [Rvm. Tom. 4. p. 64.] to inform themselves 
strictly of what things were wanting and expedient for the 


Peace and Tranquillity of that Country. Upon his return to 
the King, he was dispatched into Ireland, where, together 
with the Archbishops aforesaid, and many of the Nobility and 
Gentry, a Council was called, who came to these Resolutions, 
as necessary for the Welfare and Quiet of the Kingdom. 1st 
that the Disturbers of the Peace and Invaders of the King's 
Eights should be pronounced excommunicated by the Arch- 
bishops and Bishops, by Virtue of the Apostolick Authority. 
2dly. That the small and poor Bishopricks, not exceeding £20, 
£40, or £60 a-year, and which were governed by the ineer Irish, 
should be united to the more eminent Archbishopricks and 
Bishopricks. 3dly. That the Irish Abbots and Priors should 
be enjoined by the Authority aforesaid, to admit the English 
into a lay Brotherhood in their Monasteries, as they did in the 
meer Irish, in such manner as was practised by the English, 
in order to establish in time a Brotherly Love and Concord 
between the two people. Upon the breaking up of the Council 
our Bishop was dispatched with these Resolutions to the King, 
and by him forwarded to the Pope, to obtain the weight of his 
authority to them. The Pope thought proper to annex the 
three Cathedrals of Enachdune, Achonry, and Kilmacduach, to 
the Metropolitical Church of Tuam. But this Union was kept 
a secret, and not certified to the King, nor to the respective 
Chapters or Bishops, as King Edward the III. afterwards, in 
the year 1320, complained [Rym. Tom. 4. p. 418.] to the Pope, 
when Malachy Mac JEda, Archbishop of Tuam, seized the 
Bishoprick of Enaghdune, by Virtue of this Union. But our 
Bishop was at this time dead, and out of the reach of the 
King's Resentment. The Union of Achonry and Kilmacduach 
to Tuam never took place ; but Enaghdune continueth united 
to it, by Virtue of this Authority, and no other (as appears to 
me) to this day. [Harris.] Philip died in 1326. [Ware.] 
He made the church of St. Michael's, Cork, prebendal. Vide 
vol. i., p. 289. 

1 326. John le Blond, Dean of Cloyne, was elected Bishop before 
the end of the year 1326. [Ware.] The King, on 22 March, 
ordered the temporalities to be delivered to the said J. le 
Blound, Bishop eject. [Rot. Cane. 20 Edw. II.] 

He sat but a short time ; nay, it is questionable whether ever 
he were consecrated ; for I find that on the 12th of May, 1327, 
a Conge de Elire issued to the Dean and Chapter to authorize 
them to proceed to the Election of a Bishop. [Ware.] 

1327. Walter le Rede, or Rufus, Canon of Cork, was advanced 
to this See by the Provision of Pope John the XXII., and 
obtained Restitution of the Temporalities from the King on the 
18th of October, 1327. He was from this See translated to 
Cashell by the same Pope, a.d. 1330. [Ware.] 

J 330. John de Baliconjngham succeeded. He had been Rector of 


Ardwinhin, in the Diocese of Down, and being elected Bishop 
of Down by the Prior and Convent of the Cathedra) of St. Pat- 
rick's there, was confirmed by the Royal assent on the 21st of 
August, 1328, and for a time received the Profits of that See 
by the King's Mandate. But this Election was nulled by Pope 
John XXlId., which disappointed him of his expectations of 
that Bishoprick. Notwithstanding this, the Pope himself ad- 
vanced him to the See of Cork in 1330. See Harris 9 Ware, 
vol. i., p. 200, that there was an intention of Translating this 
Prelate to Down, and the Bishop of Down to this See ; but that 
it failed of success. He died on 29 May, 1347, having governed 
this see about seventeen years. [Ware.] 

This Bishop, on 18 Nov., 1335, became liable to the King 
for 100 shillings on account of the escape of John fitz John 
Martel, a felon, who was given into the Bishop's care. It was, 
however, afterwards stated, that he had never been committed 
to the Bishop's custody, but was killed by the gaoler, on at- 
tempting to break out of prison ; in consequence of which, and 
of the Bishop's good service in allaying disturbances in the 
county at a former period, the fine was remitted. [Tuckey's 
Cork Rem.] 

1347. John i>e RuPE,or Roch, Canon of the Cathedral of Cork, and 
a Man descended of a Noble Family, succeeded by the Election 
of the Dean and Chapter, and was consecrated by Ralph Kelley, 
Archbishop of Cashell, about Christmas 1347. He sat in this 
See ten Years and six Months, and died on the 4th of July, 
1358. [Ware.] He had been Dean of Cork. 

1359. Gerald de Barry, a Person descended of a noble and antient 
Family of the Barrys, and (if I am not Mistaken) Dean of 
Cork, was consecrated Bishop of Cork in 1359, and sat upwards 
of thirty-four Years. [By his petition to the Lords Justices & 
Council in 1381, he set forth y 1 he was above 80 yrs. old, and 
often visited by sickness, so y* he was not able to attend par- 
liament in person, and on that account desired to be excused 
personal attendance in all future parliaments, which the King 
granted by pat. dat. at Cork. 20 Jany., for the fine of two 
marcks, & sending a sufficient proxy. Rot. 5 Ric. II.] He 
died, worn out with long Sickness, in the 90th Year of his Age, 
on the 4th of January, 1393 (English Stile) and was buried in 
his own Cathedral. [Ware, and Cooper's MS. Addit.] 

1396. Frier Roger Ellksmere succeeded by the Provision of Pope 
Boniface the IX. ; and having sworn fealty to the King, was 
restored to the Temporalities on the 31st of March, 1396. He 
eat in this See ten Years. [Ware.] 

1406. One Gerald succeeded in 1406, of whom I find nothing fur- 
ther related. [Ware.] The temporalities were committed to 
the custody of Gerald, Bp. of Cloyne, 14th Feb., 1406/7, [Rot. 


pat tur. Berm. 8. Hen. IV. f. No. 41.] Was Gerald Bishop of 
Cloyne, not Cork ? 
1409. Richard, Bishop of Cork, died in this year. In 1409 A 
Conge D'Elire issued to the Dean and Chapter to elect a Bishop, 
on the death of Richard, the late Bishop. [Rot. pat. 10 Hen. 
IV. fo. No. 8. in turre Berm.] 

In 1414 the see was void, and the temporalities in the ens* 
tody of Richard, Archbishop of Cashel. [Rot. pat 13 Hen. 
IV. fo. No. 27.] 

1414. Patrick Ragged was Bishop in this year ; for, by a patent, 
dated at Dublin on 26th January, 1414/5, he had a license of 
absence for two years. [Rot. pat tur. Berm. 2. Hen. V. f. 
No. 1 20.1 He assisted at the general Council of Constance in 
1415 and 1416, as Bishop of Cork, and acquired there a vast 
reputation for learning and other endowments. He was trans- 
lated to the see of Ossory in 1417. While Bishop of Cork, he 
wrote a work on the Acts of the Council of Constance. He 
died on 20th August or 20 April, 1421. [Ware.] 

1418. Milo Fitz-John, Dean of Cork, was consecrated in 1418, and 
died in 1430. [Ware.] While this prelate sat in this See, 
Adam Pay, Bishop of Cloyne, was very active in Parliament, 
in 1421, to unite the See of Cork to that of Cloyne; but Milo 
not consenting, they were referred to the Court of Rome, the 
Cause being judged out of the Conusance of Parliament. 

Cork and Cloyne. 

1430. Jordan became Bishop of Cork and Cloyne in 1430. Upou 
the Death of Milo Fitz-John, the Custody of the See of dork 
was, for a time, committed to Nicholas, Bishop of Ardfert, and 
Richard Scurlag, Archdeacon of Cork. But before the close of 
the year 1430, Jordan, Chancellor of Limerick, was, by the 
Provision of Pope Martin the Vth, advanced to the Bishopricks 
of Cork and Cloyne, both vacant at one time, and then Canoni- 
cally united : Yet he did not obtain Restitution of the Tempo- 
ralities (for what reason I cannot find) until the 25 th of Sep- 
tember, 1431. He sat in this See about thirty years [Ware] ; 
but I think considerably more. The Foundation Charter of 
the Collegiate Church of Youghal, granted by Thomas, Earl of 
Desmond (a Copy of which is in my Custody) and dated the 
27th of December, 1464, is addressed to this Prelate. How 
long after that date he enjoyed this Bishoprick I cannot tell ; 
but the Year preceding there were very extraordinary attempts 
made to strip him of it. William Roch, Archdeacon of Cloyne, 
by false and fraudulent suggestions to the Pope (viz., that the 


Bishop was so broken with age, and deprived of his strength 
and sight, that he could not by himself exercise the Pastoral 
Office) obtained a Deputation [Rym. Tom. II., p. 502], to be 
assigned a Coadjutor to him, and by virtue thereof seized into 
his Hands all the Rents and Income of the See. To strengthen 
the Plot, presently after, one Gerald, of the Family of the 
Geraldines, a Clergyman of the Diocese of Cloyne, and formerly 
a Domestick of the Bishop's, caused some Instruments to be 
forged, whereby the Bishop, under pretence that through 
Poverty he was unable to prosecute his Bight, had constituted 
this Gerald, and John O'Hedian, Archdeacon of Cashell, his 
Protectors, to make a resignation of his Bishopricks. O'Hedian 
employed John, the elect Bishop of Ardagh, who was then at 
Rome, his Substitute, to make this resignation into the Hands 
of Pope Pius the lid.; which being done, a Provision was 
obtained for O'Hedian to these Sees, under colour whereof the 
poor Bishop was to be oppressed and drove from his Bishop- 
ricks. But Jordan, though old, was not wanting to himself. 
He applied both to the King and the Pope for relief. The 
latter sent a Commission to the Archbishop of Cashell, and the 
Bishops of Exeter and Limerick, or to any one of them, to 
make a diligent and summary inquiry into the Premisses ; and 
if they found it to be as Jordan had represented the case, that 
then they should remove the Coadjutor, and compell him 
to give an account to Jordan of the Profits of the Sees, to 
the full Possession whereof they were to restore him. The 
King, in aid of the Pope's Commission, sent a Writ, directed 
to the Lord Lieutenant, or his Deputy, to William Barry, 
David Roch, Edmund Barret, to the Mayors of Cork and 
Toughall, to the Soveraign of Einsale, and to all his Liege 
Subjects of Ireland, commanding them upon all occasions to 
give assistance to the Pope's Commissioners ; and if they found 
that the said William Bich and Gerald made any opposition 
or resistance, that they should cause them to be arrested and 
committed to Prison, there to remain untill they were punished 
according to their Demerits; and further, that they should 
maintain and defend the Bishop and his Tenants, in the Pos- 
session ; and all this under the Penalty of Imprisonment, the 
forfeiture of their Inheritances, confiscation of their Goods, and 
the loss of all their Offices. Bishop Jordan after this continued 
quiet during his Life. But Gerald succeeded him in these 
Sees, and after him William Roob. [Harris.] 

Bishop Jordan wrote an Epistle, still extant, to King Hen. 
VI. in defence of the Earl of Ormonde, Lord Lieutenant, against 
whom a party had been formed. [Cotton.] 

The following was copied by Richard Caul field, f.s.a., from

1465? Gerald Fitz-Richard (who was so active in attempting, 
against all Right, to deprive his Predecessor, Jordan), suc- 
ceeded. He appropriated the Vicaridges of Clonmolt, Danigin- 
Donilbam, and Balli-Ispellany, to the Abby of Chore, or de 
Choro Benedicti, now called Middleton, in the County of Cork, 
of the foundation of the Gerald in es. He died in 1479. [Ware.] 

1479. William Rooh, or de Rupe (who had by fraudulent sugges- 
tions and base practices obtained a Coadjutorship to Bishop 
Jordan) succeeded, and resigned in 1490. [Ware.] Yet, in 
1496, we see a general Pardon [Rym. Tom. 12, p. 634. Rot. 
pat. 12, Hen. VII. Memb. 6-9] issued to this Prelate, as Bishop 
of Cork, by King Henry the VII., as also to David, Archbishop 
of Cashell, Thomas, Bishop of Lismore and Watcrford, and 
many other?, for being concerned in the Rebellion of Perkin 
Warbeck. It is not very unusual to give the Title of Bishop 
to a Person after his Resignation; this was the case here. 

1490. Upon the Resignation of William Roch, Thajdy Mac-Carthy, 
by some called Meohar, succeeded the same year by a Provi- 
sion from Pope Innocent the Vlllth, as may be seen among 
the Collections of Francis Harold. [Ware.] Bishop Mac 
Carthy died at the town of "Eporedia," in Piedmont, on 4 
Oct., 1492. [Todd's MSS.] 

14931 -One Gerald, Bishop of Cork and Cloyne, is said to have 
resigned in 1499. [Ware.] In 1497 Gerald, Bishop of Cork 
and Cloyne, is pardoned. [Pat. Rot. 12 Hen. VII., m. 9.] 
This pardon was for his share in the rebellion of Perkin War- 
beck, and was granted from motives of state policy. 

1499. John PitzEdmund, descended from the noble family of the 
Gerald i nee, succeeded to these Sees, by a Papal provision, on 
the 26th of June, 1499. [Ware.] He made a decree in Christ 
Church, Cork, on 25th March, 1514, confirming one Gerot in 
the principality of the Rochforths. In this decree the name of 
John Walshe, Dean of Cork, appears. [Caulfield MSS.] The 
date of this Bishop's death was not discovered by Ware, but he 
died in or before August, 1520, for, in the State Papers (Vol. 
II., p. 43), occurs the following letter from the Earl of Surrey 
to Wolsey, dated from Dublin, 27th August, 1520 : — 

" Also plesith it Your Grace to understonde, the Busshop off 
Cork is ded ; and grete [uute is made] to me to wright for men

"T. Subeby. 
" To my Lordes Legates goode Grace." 

In September of the same year, 1520, Walter Wellesley 
(afterwards Bishop of Kildare), was recommended by the Earl 
of Surrey for the vacant See of Cork, but refused to accept it 
unless he were permitted to hold with it the Priory of Conall, 
co. Eildare. [State Papers II., p. 42.] 
1521. Patrick was Bishop on 13 Nov., 1521. His attestation, of 
that date, to the will of Patrick Hygyn is now remaining, 
with the original will, among the Sarstield and Tyrry papers, 
at Cork [I have seen it]. Probably he sat only for a year or 
two. [Cotton.] 

Could the following refer to the death of this Bishop : — 
" And Y dowte not, but that, by fore this tyme, the Kynges 
Hizghnis, and your Grace, hathe had the Knowliche of the 
dethe of the late Byshoppe of Corke." [Extract from a letter 
of Sir John Stile to Wolsey, dated 25 April, 1522. State 
Papers, vol. ii., page 43.] 
152— % John Bennbt died in 1536, [Ware] or 1535. 

" He is called by some John Ferret ; but there is still in the 
office at Dublin a license of the 28th Hen. 8, to the Deans and 
Chapters of Cork and Cloyne, permitting them to Elect a Bishop 
in the room of the late Bishop John Bennet, and recommending 
Dominic Terry to succeed him. The conge d'lire was then used 
in Ireland, now better changed to a King's letter, nominating 
the successor." [Bennet MSS.] 

Bishop Bennet is believed to have been a descendant of 
Richard Bennet, who founded "St. Mary's Church, in Youghal. 
The Bishop resided there, and endowed the chantry of his 
ancestor with lands and houses in Youghal and its neighbour- 
hood. — [See Ulster Journal of Arclueology, April, 1854, and 
Hayman's Handbook of Youghal.] 

King Henry VIII. on May 21 , in the twenty-seventh year of 
his reign (i.e. 1535), issued a warrant, directing the Arch- 
bishop of Cashel, and the Bishops of Ross and Limerick, to con- 
secrate Master Edmund, the nephew, of James Fitzwilliam, 
Dean of Cloyne, and invest him with the bishopric of Cloyne 
and Cork, as soon as he shall be thereunto elected by the 
Chapters of Cloyne and Cork, and shall have done his fealty. 
Cat. MSS. Harl. [Cole.] 

This nomination does not appear to have been acted on. 
1536. Sept. 20. Dominiok Tybbe, Rector of Shandon, Cork, was ap- 
pointed to the Bishoprick of Cork and Cloyne, vacant by the death 


of John Benet, and in the gift of the Crown, as well by the law 
and custom of the land as by the Statute of the 25th of Kins 
Henry VIII. [Morrin's Pat. Rolls, vol. i., pages 24 and 26% 
He was consecrated in 1536 by Edmund Butler, Archbishop of 
Cashel, and the Bishops of Ross, Limerick, and Emly. While 
he governed this See, one Lewis Mac-Namarra, a Franciscan 
Frier, obtained a Provision to it from Pope Paul the Hid., on 
the 24 of September, 1 540; but Lewis dying at Rome a few Days 
after, John Hoyedan, Canon of Elphin, was appointed to 
succeed, by Provision also from the rope, on the 5th of Ho- 
vember following. Yet, notwithstanding these Previsions, Bishop 
Tirrey, on whom King Henry VIII. had conferred the See, 
received the profits all his time, and sat about twenty years. 
[Ware.] He was reckoned a favourer of the changes in Reli- 
gion then in agitation. [Harris.] In 1553 be was named in 
the patent for the investiture of Roland, Archbishop of Cashel, 
[Morrin, vol. i., p. 310], and in 1554 gave certain rents to the 
vicars Choral. [Cotton.] 
1557. Rogbb Skiddy succeeded. He was Dean of Limerick and 
Rector of Eilmoone, Meath, from 1552 to 1557. On the 18th 
September, 1657, Queen Mary writes to the Lord Deputy, 
directing the restitution of the temporalities of Cork and Cloine 
to be made to Roger Skidd}', the donation of which Sees was 
in the patronage of the Crown ; and stating that her Majesty 
had " addressed letters commendatory to his Holiness the rope, 
a good while since, in his favour, and it was hoped he would 
shortly receive his bull and expedition from his holiness." 
[Morrin, vol. i., p. 377.] Skiddy obtained restitution of the 
temporalities by patent of Nov. 2, 1557. [lb. vol.]., p. 373.] 
Queen Mary, however, died before his actual investiture, and 
a stop was put to his promotion for some years. [Ware.] On 
31 July, 1561, Queen Elizabeth writes to the Earl of Sussex 
and the Lord Chancellor, directing the admission of Roger 
Skiddie to the bishopricks of Cork and Cloyne, to which he had 
been previously elected, and commanding the Chancellor to 
issue the proper letters for his consecration. [Morrin, vol. i., 
p. 472.] On 29 Oct., 1561, Skiddy obtains restitution of tem- 
poralities and confirmation of his nomination by the Dean and 
Chapter to the bishoprick of Cork and Cloyne. [Morrin, vol. 
i., p. 466.] In his writ of Restitution to the Temporalities was 
a Retrospective Clause, that he should have the Temporalities 
from the time of his first advancement by Queen Mary. His 
Mandate for Consecration bears date the last of July, and it 
appears therein that he was only Bachelor of Arts when he 
was consecrated Bishop. [Ware.] 

He resigned the bishopricks of Cork and Cloyne on 18 
March, 1566 [Morrin, vol. i., p. 500.], and was appointed 
Warden of Youghal. 


" Skiddy was applied to in 1557 for consent to alienate the 
Estates of Clojne for ever to the Fitzgerald family, and is said 
to have consented, but nothing seems to have been done in his 
time." [Bennet MSS.] See page 3. 
1570. Riohabd Dixon, who for a few months previously had been 
Prebendary of Rathmichael, in the diocese of Dublin, succeeded 
to the Sees of Cork and Oloyne after an interval of nearly four 
years. [Ware and Cotton.] He was Chaplain to the Lord 
Deputy Sydney, who wrote to Sir Wm. Cecil, on 26 December, 
1569, recommending him for the bishopric of Cork and Cloyne, 
" the yearly value of which did not exceed £40" Some time 
after, on 17 May, 1570, Queen Elizabeth thus writes from 
Hampton Court to Sir Henry Sidney : — " We are pleased that 
Richard Dyxon, being by you very well commended for his 
learning and other qualities, shall have the bishoprics of Cork 
and Cloyne." [Morrin, vol. i., p. 539.1 The letters patent 
and the Mandate for Consecration and Writ of Restitution were 
dated 6 June, 1570, by virtue whereof Dixon was consecrated 
the same year. [Ware.] He was deprived the following year 
for professing the Roman Catholic Religion, according to 
Tuckey'e Cork Remembrancer, page 54. But a different cause 
for deprivation appears from the following extract from the 
original minute-book of a Royal Commission issued in 1570, 
now remaining in the Exchequer Office, Dublin : — "March 7, 
1570-1. Richard Dixon, Bishop of Cork and Cloyne, was 
sentenced to do public penance in Christ Church, Dublin, 
during divine service on Sunday next, but did it in hypocrisy 
and pretence of amendment. Therefore the Commissioners, on 
7 tli November, 1571, proceeded (after full proof and examina- 
tion had) to deprive him of his See, for having married a 
woman of bad character, one Anne Goole* of Cork, while his 
lawful wife, Margaret Palmer, by whom lie had children, 
was living. And for having (after this done) attempted, by 
letters, to induce another respectable young lady to be married 
to him." Some doubt as to their power to deprive him was felt 
by the Commissioners, for on 16 April, 1571, the Lord Chan- 
cellor Weston, the Archbishop of Dublin, and the Lord Justice 
Fitzwilliam, write to Cecil (then Lord Burohlby), stating 
that " Richard Dixon, Bishop of Cork less than twelve months, 
who has a married wife, has, under color of matrimony, re- 
tained a woman of suspected life as his wife ; that they have 
compelled him to do penance in the Cathedral of Dublin, but 
fearing to exceed their commission, desire instructions as to 
depriving him." [State Papers.] 

Of Richard Dixon, whose Episcopal career was so unfortu- 
nate, little is known. He addressed, in 1552, some Latin 
Hexameter and Pentameter historical verses to Sir W. Cecil, 
then Principal Secretary of State to King Edw. VI. [Lands- 


downe MSS., 104, f. 75.] And it is highly probable that he 
wrote in the same language and metre the monumental in- 
scription on the brass, still in Cheshunt Church, concerning 
Nicholas Dixon, its founder and rector, who died in 1448. 
After his deprivation, Bishop Dixon probably retired to Eng- 
land, and, perhaps, was the Richard Dixon, who, along with 
Christopher Dixon, tenanted, in 1581, the manor of Wakefield, 
co. York [Calendar of Pleadings, vols. 83 and 79, Brit Museum], 
which had been devised in 1557 by William Sandys to his son, 
Francis. [See West's Furness, pp. 326-7.] 

The family of Bishop Dixon was descended remotely from 
Richard Keith (the second son of Keith, Earl Marshal of 
Scotland), who was commonly called " Dick," and whose sons, 
with the carelessness of that age, were styled " Dickson." Of 
this family was the Rev. Sir Nicholas Dixon, Rector of Ches- 
hunt, Herts, and Canon of Lincoln, and buried in the chancel 
of that church. He died in 1448, as already stated, having 
been successively Clerk of the Pipe, Treasurer, and Baron of 
the Exchequer. He was one of the executors of the will of 
Ralph Neviil, the great Earl of Westmoreland. [See Foss's 
Judges of England.] About the same time lived John Dixon 
(the nephew, probably, of Sir Nicholas), a native of Furness, in 
Lancashire, who held a government office in London. He 
married Ann Roos (a descendent of William, Lord Roos, the 
competitor for the Crown of Scotland), of Witherslack, or 
Wooderslack, in Westmoreland, whose mother was Anne, 
daughter of Rowland Thornborough, of Hanersfield, county 
Lancaster. John Dixon and Anne Roos had two sons, William 
and Miles, and a daughter, Margaret, wife of William Sandys 
(whose mother was Margaret Curwen), and mother of Arch- 
bishop Sandys. [See West's Antiquities of Furness.] Wil- 
liam Dixon (the son of John and Ann Dixon) obtained, circa 
] 544, a grant of the Carmelite friary of Clon curry, county Kil- 
dare, aud had issue two 6ons — William (settled at Heaton 
Roids, Bradford, county York, in 1564, who died in 1594), 
ancestor of the Dixons of Astle-Hall, Cheshire [See Whit- 
aker's Leeds] ; and Richard, Bishop of Cork, <fcc. The Irish 
records state William Dixon, of Cloncurry, to have been of the 
Scottish ration, but the " Fells of Furnees," the birthplace, 
probably, of William Dixon, were either Scotch or English, 
according to the loose verbiage then in use, and were geogra- 
phically near to Scotland. From Bishop Richard Dixon des- 
cended Elisabeth (daughter of Sir Richard Dixon, knight, 
whose castle of Barrettstown, county Kildare, was burned in 
1641), who became the wife of Sir Kildare Borrowes (ancestor 
of Sir Erasmus Dixon Borrowes) ; and from the same Bishop 
descended Abraham Dixon, who died at Beeston Roids, Leeds, 
in 1671, the ancestor of the Dixons of Seaton-Carew. 


The arms of all these members of the Dixon family are the 
same as those of Sir Nicholas Dixon, of Cheshunt, namely, 
"Gu., a fleur-de-lis ; or, a chief, Ermine," excepting that the 
Bishop changed the gules to sable, for sake of distinction. It 
is noteworthy that the families of Gurwen, Sandys, Dixon, and 
Thornborough, all nearly connected by intermarriages, each 
contributed to the Episcopate in the 16th century. Dixon was 
appointed to Cork a few days after the nomination of Sandys 
to York. 
1571-2. January 2. Mathew Seaine (or Sbeyne, or Shkhan) is 
appointed by her Majesty's letter to the bishoprick of Cork and 
Cloyne, vacant by deprivation of the late Incumbent. [Morrin, 
vol. i., p. 547.] His letters patent were dated 29 May, 1752 
[ Harris], and he was consecrated the same year. [Ware.] 

He was a great Enemy to the Superstitious Veneration paid 
by the People to Images ; and as an Instance of it, in October, 
1578, he publickly burned St. Domi nick's Image at the high 
Cross of Cork, to the great Grief of the superstitious People of 
that Place. [Harris.] He died on the 13th of June, 1582, or, 
ad some say, in August, 1583. Perhaps he was that Sheyn 
whom Richard Stanihur&t [Descript. of Ireland, chap. 7] says 
was educated at Oxford and Paris, and that he wrote a Treatise, 
de Republican [Ware.] Anthony Wood mentions one John 
Sheyn to have taken his Degree of Master of Arts on the 9th 
of March, 1523 ; and adds, that possibly he was the author of 
the aforesaid Book de Republica. [Harris.] Bishop Sheyn 
was educated first at Peter-house, in Cambridge, but it does 
not appear that he graduated in that University. [Athense 
Can tab r., I. p. 454.] 

'* Matthew Sbehau, in 1575, leased away the whole See of 
Cloyne for ever, for five marks per annum." [Bennet MSS.] 
See page 3. 

Cork, Clotne, and Ross. 

1583. William Lyos, Bishop of Ross, obtained the See of Cork in 
commendam in 1583, and subsequently that of Cloyne. On 
23 August, 1583, the Archbishop of Dublin and Sir Henry 
Wallopp write to the Privy Council, proposing that the Bishop- 
rick of Cork, now void, should be united to that of Rosscarbery, 
wherein there is an Incumbent. They urge the smallness of 
both those livings and the merits of the Bishop of Ross. Queen 
Elisabeth, on 4 Nov., 1583, refuses to unite the Bishopricks, 
but grants the revenues of Cork in commendam to the Bishop 
of Rosscarbery until her further pleasure be declared. [Morrin, 
vol. ii., p. 66.] Her Majesty directed, on 4 March, 1586-7, 
that William Lyon,Bp. of Rosscarbery, shall have in commendam 
the bishopricks of Cork and Cloyne in consideration "of his 
diligence in well instructing the people of his diocese, as also 



for the hospitality which he keepeth amongst them." [Morrin, 
vol. ii. p. 122.] 

William Lyon, in whose favour the three Sees were now 
united, was the first Protestant Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, and 
Boss, and was said to have been in the sea line in his youth. 
[Bennet MSS.] He was a native of Chester, and Chaplain to 
Arthur, Lord Grey, Lord Deputy of Ireland. [Ware.] He 
had been educated at Oxford. [Cotton.] He was made Vicar 
of Naas by Letters Patent, dated the 6 th of November, 1573 ; 
and on the 24 of November, 1577, obtained a Dispensation to 
hold the same with any other Benefice for Life, and a Licence 
to live in England, and transport the Profits of his Vicarage 
into that Kingdom. On the 23 of July, 1580, he was presented 
by Queen Elizabeth to the Vicaridge of Bandanston [P. Seal, 
dated Grenwich, 30 March, Bolls, 24° Eld.] in the County of 
Kildare, which he held together with that of Naas. [Harris.] 
He was consecrated Bishop of Ross in 1582 ; received Cork 
in commendam in 1583, and Cloyne in 1586. 

On the 12 June, 1595 [Rym. 16 Tom. p. 276] he was ap- 
pointed one of the Commissioners to consider and find out 
Ways and Means to people Minister with English Inhabitants, 
and to establish a voluntary Composition through that Province 
in lieu of Cess and Taxes. This Prelate new built the Bishop's 
Palace at Cork, on the Structure and Ornaments of which he 
expended one thousand Pounds. This and other Particulars 
of his Liberality and publick Spirit appear in a return to a 
regal Visitation [in Prerog. Off.] held about the year 1615, 
where, it is said, "that the Bishoprick of Cloyne was granted 
by his Predecessor in Fee- farm, at five Marks Kent ; that Cork 
and Ross, when he came into possession of these Sees, were 
worth but Seventy Pounds per annum, but that he had im- 
proved them all to two hundred Pounds per annum ; that there 
was no Mansion-House at Ross when he became possessed of 
that Bishoprick, and only a spot of Ground to build one on ; 
that he built a House which cost him at least three hundred 
Pounds, which in a little more than three years after was burnt 
down by the Rebel 0* Donovan ; that he found no Episcopal 
House at Cork, but that he built one which cost him at least 
a thousand Pounds ; that he never was in Possession of the 
House belonging to the Bishoprick of Cloyne, which was with- 
held from him by Sir John Fitz-Edmund Fitz-Gerald in his 
Life, and since his Death by his Heir. In 1615, April 25th 
and 28th, he preferred two Petitions to the House of Lords 
against the Heirs of this Sir John Fitz-Gerald, concerning the 
Episcopal House of Cloyne and other things withheld from 
that See ; but what redress he met with I know not It ap- 
pears in Archbishop Bram hall's Life, how greatly all the bishop- 
ricks in the Province of Cashell had suffered at the time of the 
Reformation, partly by the Popish Bishops, who resolved to 


make as much of them as they could, and partly by the Protes- 
tant Successors, who might fear another change ; but that Cork 
and Ross fared the best of any Bishoprick in that Province, a 
very good Man, Bishop Lyon, being placed there early in the 
Reformation. He died at Cork, in a very advanced age, on the 
4 th of October, 1617 [or rather 1616, W. M. B.], and was buried 
there in the Cathedral [Ware], as was supposed. But in March, 
1849, in the progress of some repairs in the immediate neigh- 
bourhood of the present See House, there was discovered the 
tomb of this Prelate in a place which probably was the site of 
a domestic chapel belonging to the ancient Palace. The follow- 
ing is a copy taken literatim from the inscription in raised 
letters on a flagstone, imperfectly chiselled, which covered the 
tomb : — 

I . do . beleve . oneli . to . be . saved . be . the . merites 
of . I.H.S. of. I.H.S. our . Savioure.

In the tomb were human bones, which, in all probability, 
were those of the Bishop ; who appears to have prepared this 
resting-place for his body several years before his death. 

A square stone was affixed to the wall above this tomb, and, 
several years ago was removed to another part of the grounds. 
It is inscribed as follows, and doubtless was erected by the same 
prelate : 

devs . IVD 


The remains of the Bishop, and his tombstone, were carefully 
removed (in the presence of the Venerable S. M. Kyle, ll.d., 
Vicar-General), to the porch of the cathedral, where they are 
now deposited. 

An interesting portrait of Bishop Lyon is preserved in the 
see-house of Cork. 

The will of Bishop Lyon, dated 15 Sept, 1609, was proved at 
Dublin, on 8 November, 1617, and administration thereof was 

VOL. III. e 2 


granted to his relict and executrix, Elisabeth Lyon, on the 1 7 
Nov., same year. The bishop mentioned in his will a son, 
William ; and two daughters, Mary and Elisabeth. [Dublin 

1617. April 22. John Boyle, d.d., is appointed "to be Bishop of 
Ro8carbery, Cork, and Gloan, void by death of William Lyon ; 
to be consecrated to the See of Cork, as most eminent, aud to 
hold the others in commendam" [Tanner MSS. Bodleian, 
Oxon.] This John Boyle was a native of Kent, and was a u.d. 
of Oxford, lie was made Dean of Lichfield in February, 
1610, but is not mentioned by Le Neve among the Deans of 
Lichfield. [Cotton.] He was the elder brother of Richard 
Boyle, the first Earl of Cork ; and a curious letter from the 
Bishop to his brother is extant, detailing the method in which 
he obtained the promise of these Sees, and the gratuity de- 
manded of him by the King or his ministers. The Earl lent him 
£250 for this purpose. [Lismore MSS.] There is another of his 
letters, dated 2 March, 1617-18, on the samesubject of gratuities, 
demanded by a kinswoman of the Earl, for having gotten him 
his preferment. [MS. Egerton, 80, Brit- Museum. j His letters 
patent to Cork were dated 25 August, 1618, and the writs for 
his consecration and restitution of temporalities bear date the 
26th and 27th of same month; and he received another patent 
to hold the bishoprics of Rosscarberie and Cloue in com- 
mmdam^ ou 10 April, 1618-19. [Rot. Pat] He was conse- 
crated in the year 1618. [Ware.] He himself says that his 
" consecration is to be done by the Archbishop of Cashel, which 
will save much trouble and expense." [MS. Egerton, 80, Brit 
Mus.] On the 4th Oct., 1619, he had the misfortune to break 
his leg, which accident he, it is likely, never recovered, for he 
died at Bishop's Court, near Cork, on 10 July, 1620, aged 57, 
and was buried on the 1 2th July, at Y onghal. For his epitaph, 
see vqI. ii., page 412. 

Bishop John Boyle had issue a daughter, Barbara, wife of 
Sir John Browne, of Hospital, in the couuty of Limerick, knt., 
to whom she bore a son, Thomas, who died unm. ; and four 
daughters. [Lodge.] 

1 620. Richard Boyle (second son of Michael Boyle, merchant, of 
London, by Jane Peacock), was appointed Bishop of Cork, 
Cloyne, and Ross, by letters under the Privy Seal, dated 22 
August, and his letters patent were dated 24 Oct., 1620. 
He was consecrated in November following. He was per- 
mitted by his patent to hold all his other benefices, except 
the Deanery of Waterford, and to receive ail arrears of the 
Bishoprick from the date of his predecessor's death. [Rot. Pat. 
and Ware.] There was also a King's letter, datea January 
18, anno 18° Jac. I., directing letters patent of perinde valere to 
Dr. Richard Boyle, to stand titulary Bishop of Cork and Cloyne, 
and commendatory Bishop of Rosscarbery, as if he had been so 


collated and consecrated. [Pat. Rot. Jac. I.] In 1602 lie was 
made Warden of Youghal, and from 1604 to 1620, was Dean 
of Waterford. He was also, from 1605 to 1623 (?) Archdeacon 
of Limerick. From 1620 to 1638 he was Bishop of Cork, 
Cloyne, and Ross ; and from 1638 to 1645, was Archbishop of 

In 1621 Bishop Richard Boyle petitioned the King that the 
See of Cloyne, which he had received in commendam, "might 
be so united to Cork as to be deemed one bishopric." The 
King grants this, and directs that he be entitled Bishop of Cork 
and Cloyne ; that the cathedrals of Cork and Cloyne shall be 
his cathedrals ; and that he shall have leave to reside in what- 
ever part of the diocese he may find most convenient. — Dated 
Oct 14. [Rot. Pat.] This bishop, while he sat in the See of 
Cork, repaired more ruinous churches and consecrated more new 
ones than any other bishop in that age, which Doctor Edward 
Worth, Dean of Cork, observed in his funeral service. [Ware.] 
In his time, and doubtless by his liberal aid, an organ was, for 
the first time, erected in Cork Cathedral. In 1 633 the following 
item appears in the old Chapter book : — " An order to pay 
eighteen pounds towards the erecting a musical instrument, 
called in English, Organs, as the custom is to have in Cathedral 

Bishop Boyle was translated to Tuam on 30 May, 1638, 
and on 21 June, Cloyno was separated from the other two 
dioceses by a King's letter under privy seal, and by letters 
patent, dated 8 Oct., 1638. [Ware and Pat Rot] 

When Archbishop of Tuam, Richard Boyle, soon after the 
commencement of the rebellion of 1641, had to retire, along 
with the Bishop of Killala and other Protestants, to Gal way, 
for protection. And when the townsmen of that place rose in 
arms against the garrison, the lives of all the party would 
have been lost but for the address and conduct of the Earl of 
Clanrickard. [Lodge.] Boyle was afterwards in Bristol, from 
whence he returned, and soon afterwards died at Cork, on 19 
March, 1644, when he was buried in a tomb prepared by him- 
self in the Cathedral. This monument was destroyed in 1725, 
when the old Cathedral was taken down. 

He married Martha (dau. of Richard, or rather John Wright, 
esq., of Catherine-Hill, Surrey), and had issue two sons and 
nine daughters, viz. : — Michael, Archbishop of Armagh ; Colonel 
Richard Boyle, killed at Drogheda in 1649, being slain by 
Cromwell at the general Storm on that Town, after Quarter 
given ; Elizabeth, married to Sir Robert Travers, Knt., who 
was killed in the Battle of Knocknoness in 1647 (by whom 
she had a son, Richard Travers, esq , Ancestor to the Reverend 
Boyle Travers, d.d., Iucumbent of St Paul's, Dublin, <fcc. ; and 
a daughter, Martha, married first to Captain Robert Stannard, 


of Killmallock, who died in 1655, Ancestor to Eaton Stannard, 
esq., one of his Majesty's CouDcil-at-Law, and late Recorder of 
the City of Dublin, and secondly to Sir Richard Aldworth, of 
Newmarket, in the County of Cork, knt) ; Alice, to Henry

Cork and Ross. 

1638. William Chappel, b.d., was appointed to the sees of Cork 
and Ross by patent, dated 26 Oct., 1638, the privy seal war- 
rant bearing date, Woodstock, 30 August, same year. He was 
consecrated at St. Patrick's, Dublin, on 1 1 November. [Ware 
and Rot. Pat] 

W. Chappel was born at Lexington, in Nottinghamshire, on 
10 December, 1582, and was baptized by immersion, as was 
the custom in his native parish. He was instructed in Gram- 
mar Learning at Mansfield, in the same county, and having 
entered Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, he became a Scho- 
lar, and in 1607 a Fellow of that College, where John Milton 
was one of his pupils. His fellowship he held for 27 years. 
He was nominated to the Bishopric of Killaloe by letters of 
privy seal, dated from Westminster, 23 March, 1633/4, but 
declined, I suppose, that post. At the request, however, of 
Bishop Laud, he accepted the Deanery of Cashel in 1633, 
which he held until 1638. He was appointed Provost of 
T.C.D. in 1634, but was not allowed to execute his authority 
until the 9th of February following. Indeed, he was not 
actual Provost until the 5th June, 1637, when he was sworn 
in ; and the reason of the delay is thus given by Ware : — 

By the first Charter given to the University, in March, 1591, 
the Election of a Provost was placed in the Fellows, and so 
continued until the vacancy made by the Promotion of Doctor 


Ussher, as aforesaid. Archbishop Land, who was then Chan- 
cell or of the University, thought proper to introduce a new 
Sett of Statutes, which vested the Nomination of the Provost 
in the Crown. This Project took some time in ripening, for 
the concurrence of the Fellows to this change was necessary, 
and they were induced to consent to a Surrender of their 
Old Charter, upon making them Tenants for Life in their 
offices under the new Statutes, where before they held their 
Fellowships but for seven years from the time they com- 
menced Master of Arts; and so to gain Estates for Life 
in a small share of the Government to themselves and their 
Successors, they parted with a more absolute authority, which 
was Temporary, and submitted to a more unlimited Power 
in their Superior. For these new Statutes were not so In- 
dulgent to the Fellows, and placed a more Sovereign autho- 
rity in the Provosts than they were intrusted with by the Old 
Charter ; from whence hath flowed the negative Voice of the 
Provosts in the Election of Fellows, and other very ample 
Powers. While this Project was molding and bringing to per- 
fection, it was thought necessary to keep the place unfilled, 
that the Scheme might be at once carried into Execution by 
the King's Nomination ; and in the meantime Dean Chappel 
was placed over the College, although without the title of 
Provost, as I observed before. But in 1637, June 5th, he was 
admitted and sworn a legal Provost. 

Chappel was also, from 1636 to 1638, Treasurer of St. Pat- 
rick's Cathedral, Dublin. 

As Provost of T.C.D., which office he retained by express 
desire of King Charles, until he resigned it on 20 July, 1640, 
Chappel endeavoured to compose the religious animosities then 
prevalent, but was vehemently opposed by both Rome and 
Geneva. By his "activity in enforcing uniformity and strict 
Church discipline in the College, in opposition to the schism and 
fanaticism of the times," he made several enemies, among whom 
were Primate Usher, the Bishop of Meath, Sir William Parsons, 
and others, who represented him as " an Irish Canterbury ." 
He wrote a letter (now in Lismore Castle) to the first Earl of 
Cork, charging him with having stripped the Vicars Choral, 
and left the chancel of Youghal in a state of ruin. This letter 
was not likely to be forgotten. 

The Bishop, in 1641, was impeached by the Commons for 
misdemeanors, and summoned before Parliament. Mr. Robert 
Bysse, a noted lawyer, made a severe speech against him npon 
the delivery of the articles of his charge, on the 11th June, 
1641, to which the Bishop made a reply, which was not 
deemed satisfactory, as he was obliged to find heavy securities 
for his good conduct in future. 

In July, 1641, the Bishop went back to Cork, but in Octo- 
ber, when the rebellion broke out, returned to Dublin, and 


asked leave to retire to England. Being refused a pass, and 
ordered back to his diocese, he fled on the 26th December to 
South Wales, landing the day after at Miiford Haven. At 
Tenby, for not having a pass, he was kept in prison seven 
weeks, until released by Sir Hugh Owens. He then repaired 
to Bristol, and from thence to his native place, Lexington ; but 
all his choice collection of books, which were put on ship-board 
at Cork, were lost at Mine Head in the passage. 

Chappel was " esteemed a prelate well versed in the Learn- 
ing of the School-Men, and in Casuistical Divinity, had a clear 
Understanding, good Judgment, and was highly applauded for 
his Discretion. His temper for Government was as exact as 
his Knowledge thereof was eminent, which appeared, [while he 
was Provost of T.C.D.], in the mildness and regularity of his 
Administration, and a perfect obedience of the Scholars to the 
Rules and Statutes of the House. In order to give the Juniors 
a taste of Government, he established a Roman Commonwealth 
among them, to continue during the Christmas Vacation, in 
which they had their Dictator, Consults, Censors, and other 
Officers of the Roman States, in great Splendor." [Ware.] 

He wrote — 

1. A Book, de Methodo Concionandi, founded upon his own 
practice, in which he did not follow Ahtediu&'s Judgment, who 
adviseth-to conceal all Method ; alledging that ChrypsU dispo- 
sitionis tollit fastidium audUoris ; which may be true to a 
learned auditory, but not suitable to meaner Capacities. It 
was his manner to raise doctrinal Propositions from the Words 
of his Text, which he powerfully confirmed and enforced ; and 
when a Point of Controversy started, he did not endeavour to 
show his Eloquence on both sides of the Question, but his abi- 
lities in establishing the truth beyond all opposition or doubt. 

[Ware.] This book, Metlwdus Concionandi, was printed at 
*oudon. 8vo. ; 1648. The copy of this work now in the 
British Museum has, stamped on the cover, " Gift of G. III." 

2. The same in English. London, 1656. 

3. "Tho Use of Holy Scripture (in sermon-notes on 2nd 
Timothy, iii., 16). 8vo. London, 1652. 

4. His own Life, written in about 320 Latin Iambics, full of 
pious thoughts and interesting details. This was published by 
the antiquary, Thomas Hearne, in the fifth volume of Leland's 
"Collectanea." 8vo. Oxford, 1716 ; and afterwards by Peck, 
in his " Desiderata Curiosa." Pol. 

Bishop Chappel is one of the persons who were conjectured 
to be the authors of " The Whole Duty of Man." 

"There is, amongst the Miscellaneous Papers of Bishop 
Chandler, in the British Museum, Ex dono Domince Sharpe, 
6,489, Plat, cxxiii. P., a MS. copy of Bishop Chapel's Autobio- 
graphy. I diligently compared this with the version printed 
by Hearne. There are a few different readings. Hearne, 


doubtless, printed from a revised version. At the end are the 

two following verses, not given by that distinguished antiquary : 

" Reviso quae afctea scripaeram, et septennium" 
" Attexo quod tunc flux era t prioribus." 

At the end of the translation of the Methodus is "A Nomen- 
clator of Sundry tracts, Sermons, and Commentaries, as may 
in some measure tend to make a skilful labourer in the Lord's 
Vineyard." [R. Caulfield.] 

He was a close and subtile Disputant ; of which Doctor Bor- 
lase tells the following Story — " That at a Commencement at 
Cambridge, in presence of King James the 1st, he so warmly 
opposed the Respondent, Doctor Roberts, that, unable to solve 
his arguments, he fell into a swoon in the Pulpit : — Whereupon 
the King undertook to maintain the Thesis ; against whom Mr. 
Cappel so well prosecuted his Argument, that the King openly 
gave thanks to God, that the Opponent was his Subject, and 
not the Subject of any other Prince. Alluding to this Passage, 
the titular Dean of Cork, long afterwards, refused to enter into 
a Dispute with him, although pressed to it by the Lord Presi- 
dent, alledging that it had been a Custom 'with him to kill his 
Respondent." [Borlase's Reduct. page 157.] He died at 
Derby, in England, on Whitsunday, 1649, from whence his 
Body was conveyed to Bilsthorp, in Nottinghamshire, and 
there interred, near the Corps of his Mother. Whatever 
Wealth he left at his death he directed to be disposed of to 
Pious Uses ; which could not be very much, if what a Reverend 
Bishop [Jones, of Meath, in his sermon at Primate Margetson's 
funeral] tell us be true, That during the Troubles in England 
he was relieved out of the Alms of well-disposed People ; with 
the distribution whereof Mr. Margetson, afterwards Primate of 
all Ireland, was intrusted. There was a Marble Monument 
erected to his Memory in the Church of BUsthorp aforesaid, on 
which was the following Inscription, discovering his Birth, Pre- 
ferments, Character, and Death, viz. : —

The excellent Graces, which (if any other did) 

He received in a plentiful measure 

From God, 

He administred 

With a singular Fidelity, and Success, 

To his Glory, 

And to the publick Emolument of the Church. 

He was a strenuous Assertor 

Of Justice, Wisdom, and Divine Grace ; 

By his love to God, 


And charity to Men, 

As well Friends as Enemies, 

According to the Law and Example of Christ, 

He became to us, 

Both an Example and Law. 

He gave up his temporal Goods, 

Partly for Christ,

As to be hid from the World 

Was always his greatest Desire, 

So, he never was able to compass it, 

Nor can he now. 

In his Sixty seventh year 

He calmly surrendered his Soul to his Saviour,

And is here deposited near his venerable Mother,

went to Heaven before him ; and his remains are 
buried in the Church of Mansfield Woodhouse. 

Cork, Clotnb, and Ross. 

1660. Michael Boylb, Doctor of Divinity of the University of 
Dublin, and Dean of Cloyne (vide vol. ii., page 198), was the 
son of Richard Boyle, Archbishop of Taam, and was advanced 
to the Sees of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, by Letters Patent of 
King Charles the lid., dated the 22nd of January, 1660, and 
had his Mandate for Consecration and Writ of Restitution to 
the Temporalities the same Day ; wherein was a Clause granting 
to him the Mesne Profits of the said Sees from the death of his 
Predecessor, the Sees having been left vacant during the Com- 
monwealth. He was consecrated in St. Patrick's Church, Dub- 
lin, on the 27th of the same Month, by John, Archbishop of 
Armagh, assisted by the Bishops of Raphoe, Eilmore, Ossory, 
and Clogher, having been a little before called into the Privy 
Council. He was one of the twelve Bishops who were conse- 
crated all together in St. Patrick's Church after the Restora- 
tion ; for the Solemnization whereof, a celebrated Anthem, in- 
titled, Quam denuo exaltavit Dominus Coronam, was composed 
by Dr. William Fuller, then Dean of St Patrick's, Dublin, and 
afterwards Bishop of Limerick. Oar Bishop had been incorpo- 
rated Master of Arts at Oxford, on the 4th of November, 1637. 
Not content with these three Bishopricks, he held Possession 
of six Parishes in the West of his Diocese, as Sine Cure*; under 
colour that he could not get Clergymen to serve them. When 


Roger, Earl of Orrery, Lord President of Munster, went down 
to his Government about the close of the year 1662, or the be- 
ginning of the year 1663, he had it in Commission to see that the 
Bishops of the Province did their Duty. For this end he con- 
vened them together, and particularly admonished this Bishop, 
who was nearly related to him, to provide Clergymen for these 
vacant Livings ; and told him if he did not, that he would 
sequester the Profits, and apply them to th* Support and Edu- 
cation of some Students in the University ; upon which reproof 
the Bishop immediately fixed six Clergymen in these vacant 
Livings. [Ware.] 

The preferments of this Bishop, his marriage and issue, are 
stated in volume ii., page 198. I subjoin the following particu- 
lars from Lodge's Peerage, vol. i., page 73 : — 

"In the first parliament after the Restoration, Boyle was 
sent into England by the Lords Justices to transact the bill for 
the Settlement of Ireland, which trust, by his prudence, virtue, 
and indefatigable endeavours, he executed to the entire satis- 
faction of the Government. On 27 November, 1663, he was 
translated to the See of Dublin, with a gift of XI, 000 from the 
King, to defray the expense of his removal, and enable him to 
repair the palace of St. Sepulchre, which was decayed by the 
late distractions ; and because the revenues of the Archbishop- 
rick were not then settled, so that they were much lower than 
the Bishoprick from whence he was removed, atid the occasion 
of Expense much greater. On 17th July, 1665, he was con- 
stituted Lord High Chancellor of Ireland, and so continued 
until his removal, in 1685, by King James II. On 12 June, 
1671, he was sworn one of the Lords Justices, and on 23 Sep- 
tember following was appointed, with the Primate and others, 
to inquire into all Spiritual benefices within the Kingdom, 
being constantly joined in all commissions of importance. On 
5 July, 1675, he was again appointed one of the Lords Justices, 
and was promoted on 27 February, 1678, to the See of Armagh 
and Primacy of all Ireland ; and on 19 March was made Almoner 
to the King. Upon King James's accession, he was continued 
Lord Chancellor, and on 20 March, 1684, was a third time 
constituted one of the Lords Justices, but was removed before 
the end of the year from both these posts ; and about the 
beginning of January, 1689, had his house at Blesinton 
plundered by the Irish. He had built that house upon lands 
in the county of Wicklow, decreed to him under the Act of 
Settlement ; which he had caused to bo erected into the manor 
of Blesinton, on 2 August, 1669, with various privileges. 
He also built there a chapel for himself, and a parish church for 
the public, which he furnished with communion plate, a set of 
six bells, ifcc, and consecrated it 24 August, 1683." [Lodge,] 

Quite spent with old age, having arrived at his 93rd year 
(according to the inscription on his coffin), he died at Oxman- 


town, Dublin, and was buried on the next night, 10th Decem- 
ber, 1702, at eleven, in the Earl of Cork's tomb, in St. Patrick's 
Cathedral, without pomp. The Chancellor of that Cathedral, 
in the absence of the Dean, performed the last office. 

Primate Boyle was greatly impaired in his hearing and eye- 
sight for nearly 15 years before his death, and towards the end 
of his life lost his memory; from whence, it was thought, it 
happened that although he died very rich, yet he scarce left 
any thing to the poor or to pious uses, being otherwise of a dis- 
position, both liberal and public-spirited. All he left to the 
poor, by his will, was twenty shillings a piece to twenty poor 
men of the parish of St. Patrick's, and as much to twenty poor 
men of the parish of St. Michan's. He gave, in his lifetime, 
£200 towards erecting a new gate-house to the College of 
Dublin, and joined in a contribution of £100 to said College, 
with Thomas, Bishop of Ossory, and Dr. Jeremy Hall, for buy- 
ing books for the Library. A monument to his memory was 
placed in the church of Blesinton, with this inscription : — 

" Michael Boyle, s.t.d., Archiepisoopus Armachanus, totius

1663. Edward Synge, d.d., was, by letters patent of 21 December, 
1 663, translated to the Sees of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, from 
Limerick, &c. [Ware.] 

He was a younger brother of George Synge, Bishop of Cloyne 
in 1638, ana was the eighth son of Richard Synge and Alice 
Rowley. He was baptized at Bridgnorth, on 16th of August, 
1614, and educated at Drogheda School, and at Trin. Coll., Dub. 
He was, from 1638 to 1660, R. Killary, Meath ; from 1640 to 
1660, P. Aghadowie, Derry; from 1647 to 1660, a Minor 
Canon of St. Patrick's, Dublin ; in 1648 he was V. Luske, 
Dublin ; from 1648 (?) to 1660, Dean of Elphin ; and from 1660 
to 1663, Bishop of Limerick, Ardfert, and Aghadoe, with the R. 
Tradery, Killaloe, in commendam. 

E. Synge, with the rest of the Dublin clergy, petitioned, on 
9 July, 1647, the Commissioners of the Engli>h Parliament for 
liberty to use the Common Prayer, then lately prohibited, in 


their respective churches, and protested against the nse of the 
Directory, introduced by order, in room of the liturgy. He 
continued during the remainder of the usurpation to use the 
Common Prayer in all the public offices of his Ministry, not- 
withstanding the severe Injunctions of the Commissioners of 
the English Parliament against it. Several Complaints were 
made of his contempt of the order of the Government But by 
the Interest, which his perswasive Letters upon that occasion 
had procured him with Dr. George, then Auditor-General under 
the Usurpers, the intended prosecutions against him were 
stepped, and he was permitted to use the Common-Prayer ever 
afterwards ; which he constantly did, not only in his own, but 
also in the neighbouring Parishes untill the Restoration. 

After the Storms of Cromwell's Rebellion were blown over, 
and peace returned by the Restoration of King Charles the II., 
he was promoted to the See of Limerick, and consecrated in 
St. Patrick's Church, Dublin, on the 27 of January, 1660 (Eng- 
lish Stile), and by Letters Patent, dated the 21st of December, 
1663, was translated to the Bishopricks of Cork, Cloyne, and 
Ross; (which Sees, by reason of the exility thereof, were united, 
for this turn, with a grant of the mesne profits, from the trans- 
lation of his predecessors [Rot. Pat.]), and had his Writ of 
Restitution to the Temporalities the same Day. 

He died on the 22d of December, 1678. By a Codicil to 
his Will, dated the 23d of October before his death, he takes 
notice, that he has received Information that the two Plow- 
Lands of Ballycroneen, in the Barony of Imokilly, and County 
of Cork, which he had purchased from John Fitz Thomas 
Gerald, was formerly part of the Estate of the See of Cloyne ; 
he therefore devised them to be conveyed to the Bishop of 
Cloyne and his Successors for ever ; but under a Proviso that 
the Bishop of Cloyne should secure to his second Son, Edward, 
a Lease thereof for 40 years, at ten pounds a-year Rent : in 
which time he judged his purchase Money would be got back 
to his Family : But his Son gave up his Right to this Lease. 
And by his Will, dated the 23d of May, 1677, the Bishop left 
several Charitable Legacies to the Poor of St. Finbarr's, Cork, 
Youghall, Cloyne, and Inisshanon. He was a learned and 
zealous Preacher, very much admired and approved of by all 
that heard him ; and besides, an easy, familiar, correct Stile to 
recommend his Sermons. He had one peculiar excellence in 
his manner of speaking or delivery ; that every one of his Con* 
gregatiou thought the Discourse particularly addressed to him- 
self, and that the Preacher was privately instructing him in his 
Dnty, and perswading him to the Practice of it From the death 
of this Prelate, the See of Cloyne hath been separated from those 
Cork and Ross, which last two mentioned Sees have ever since 
gone together. [Ware.] 

Edward Synge married Barbara (eldest daughter of William 


Latbam, esq., of New Place, Co. Londonderry, by Barbara, dan. 
of Sir John Vaughan, Knt.), and by her, whose will was dated 
22 Feb., 1693/4, and proved 21 Oct, 1712, had issue two sons, 
Samuel (Dean of Eildare and P. Droindaleague, Cork, q. v.); and 
Edward (Archbishop of Tuam, and previously P. Holy Trinity, 
Cork, q. v.); besides five daughters — 1. Joane, or Barbara (wife 
of John Folliott, esq. ; 2. Anne, wife of William Carr, esq. ; 
3. Margaret ; 4. Helena, wife of Simon Pardon, esq., of Tin- 
nerana, Co. Clare ; 5. Mary, wife of Bryan Townsend, esq. 
[Family Papers.] 


Cork and Boss. 

1678. Edward Wetbnhall succeeded to the Sees of Cork and Boss. 
Edward Wetenhall, Doctor of Divinity, was born at Litchfield, 
in England, on the 7th of October, 1636, and in his youth was 
educated under the Famous Doctor Busby at Westminster 
School ; into which he was admitted a King's Scholar a.d. 
1651 ; and from thence was elected a Scholar on the Founda- 
tion in Trinity-College, Cambridge, in 1655. a.d. 1660 he 
removed from Cambridge to Oxford, and was made Chaplain 
of Lincoln College ; afterwards he became Minister of Long- 
comb, in Oxfordshire, and then Besidentiary Canon of Exeter ; 
to which he was collated June 11th, 1667, being then only 
Master of Arts ; and afterwards he became Master of a pub* 
lick School there. 

He was invited into Ireland in the year 1672, by Michael 
Boyle, then Archbishop of Dublin, to whom he dedicated his 
sermon, preached in Christ-Church, Dublin, on 4 August, 1 672, 
being his " first appearance in Ireland." He took the degree 
of d.d. in Dublin University, became Master of a great school 
there, and Curate of St. Wer burgh's parish. From 1674 to 
1675 he was P.Ta Saggart, Dublin; and from 1675 to 1679, 
Precentor of Christchurch and P. Castleknock, Dublin. He 
was promoted to the Sees of Cork and Boss by Letters Patent, 
dated the 14th of February, 1678, and was consecrated in 
Christ-Church, Dublin, on the 23rd of March following (with 
the permission of his Metropolitan) by Michael, Archbishop of 
Armagh, assisted by the Bishops of Kildare, Killala, Baphoe, 
and Ossory. Here he continued exercising his Pastoral Func- 
tion with great Diligence and assiduity for above twenty 
years ; and was from hence translated to the united Sees of Kil- 
more and Ardagh, by Letters Patent, dated the 18th of April, 

While he continued Bishop of Cork and Boss, he suffered 
great Cruelties and Oppressions, under the Tyranny of the 


Irish, from the year 1688 untill the settlement under King 
William. [Ware.] He was taken prisoner by the rebels, but 
was released on 27 July, 1690. [Dean Davies' Journal.] 

Wetenhall, in 1689, attended the parliament of James II. 
in Ireland, and used to say in his defence that if he had 
not remained in Ireland there would not have been left a Pro- 
testant church in the whole of the three Cork dioceses. [Ben- 
net MSS.j 

Bishop Wetenhall, at his own expense, repaired the ruinous 
Episcopal Houses both of Cork and Kilmore, and rebuilt the 
Cathedral Church of Ardagh, which was quite demolished. 
He died in London on the 12th of November, 1713, and was 
buried in Westminster Abbey, in the South-cross, where he 
hath a Grave-Stone with this inscription — " H.S.E. Depositum

The will of Bishop Edward Wetenhall was dated 10th May, 
1709, and proved at Dublin on 10 March, 1713/4. In it he 
observes — " that he dies a Protestant of the Church of England 
and Ireland, which he judges to be the purest church in the 
world, and to come nearest to the Apostolical institution," al- 
though he declares his belief that there are divers points which 
mi^ht be altered for the better, both in her articles, liturgy, 
and discipline ; but especially in the conditions of clerical com- 
munion. He directs that if he should die in Kilmore, his body 
should be interred near good Bishop Bedell's, and ordered his 
grave to be five foot deep. He left £2Q> to be distributed out 
of his pocket gold, iofourty poor Protestants of the neighbour- 
hood where he should die, and £7 for scarves and gloves for 
seven clergymen who should attend his corps. 

Bishop Wetenhal] was, I think, twice married, his second 
wife being Philippa, dau. of Sir William D'Oyley, Baronet. 
He had issue by his first wife two sons — Edward, m.d., and 
John, Archdeacon of Cork, q. v. Edward, the Bishop's* elder 
son, was born circa 1662, and was entered a Fellow Commoner 
of T.C.D. on 23 Oct., 1677. His will was dated 4 Sept., 1723, 
and proved 29 Nov., 1733. He left issue three daughters — 
Anne, wife of John Hawkins ; Mary ; and Philippa, wife of 
Thomas Russell, Archdeacon of Cork, q. v. 

Bishop Wetenhall mentioned in his will his relatives — Ga- 
briel Wetenhall, of Hanklowe, Cheshire ; and Wetenhall Sneyd, 
Vicar-General, and afterwards Archdeacon of Kilmore.

1699. Dive Downes, d.d., was raised to the Sees of Cork and Ross 
by letters patent, dated 18 April, 1699. [Ware.] 

Dive Downes was descended of a family of antiquity, long 
seated in Suffolk, whence branches subsequently spread into 
Norfolk and Northamptonshire. He was the grandson of Dive 
Downes, of East Had don, and was son of the Reverend Lewis 
Downes, Rector of Thornby, in Northamptonshire. He was 
born at Thornby, on 16 October, 1653, and was educated 
under Mr. Haslam. When about 16 years of age he entered 
T.C.D. as Pensioner, on 29 June, 1669, his Tutor being Thomas 
Sheridan. He became a Fellow of T.C.D in 1675, and gradu- 
ated subsequently d.d. in that University. 

He was ordained Deacon, at St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, 
by Henry, Bishop of Meath, on 24 Feb., 1677 [Consistorial Office, 
Dublin], and was ordained Priest on 25 May, 1678. [Cotton.] 

He was, from 1683 to 1690, P. Wicklow, Dublin ; from 25 
June, 1688 to 27 July, 1687, Sequestrator of Castlemacadam 
and Drumkey, Dublin ; from 1690 to 1699, Archdeacon of 
Dublin. In 1689 he was attainted by King James. 

He was consecrated to these Sees at Cashel, on June 4, by 
William Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by Nathanael Bishop of 
Waterford, and Thomas, Bishop of Limerick [Reg. Cashel] ; and 
was enthroned at Cork, on June 7, and at Ross on June 20. 
[D.R.] Bishop King, of Derry, described him as a man con- 
siderable for gravity, prudence, and learning, both in divinity, 
ecclesiastical law, and other sciences. 

Bishop Downes was an active Prelate in visiting his diocese, 
and wrote an interesting Journal of a Tour through his diocese 
of Cork and Ross [now printed in these Records], which was 
preserved in manuscript in the Library of T.C.D., where it was 
deposited by Archdeacon Kyle. 

Dive Downes married, firstly, on 21 Feb., 1692-3, Sarah, 
dau. of Henry Dowdall, esq., of Athlone, and by her had a 
daughter, Lettice, who was buried at St. Patrick's, Dublin, on 
26 May, 1695. He married, secondly, Anne Carlton, on 22 
Oct, 1696, and by her had no issue. His third wife was 
Elisabeth, dau. of Thomas Becher, esq , of Sherkin, Co. Cork, 
and relict of Captain Horatio Townsend, to whom she bore a 
daughter, Penelope Townsend. The Bishop had by her one 
daughter, Elisabeth. His third wife having died, circa 1706 
[her will was dated 12 March, 1705, and was proved 4 August, 
1707], he married, fourthly, on 19 August, 1707, Catherine 
Fitzgerald, sister of Robert, the 19th Earl of Kildare, and by 
her had issue a sou, Robert, and a posthumous daughter, Anne, 

VOL. III. f 2 


who was born on the same day that her father died, namely, 
Sunday, 13 of November, 1709. The Bishop's will was dated 
on 26 April, 1709, and proved the same year. He died in 
Dublin, and was buried at St Andrew's, in that city. 

Robert, the Bishop's son (bora 1708, entered T.O.D. in 1724) 
was x.p. for the town of Kildare, and married, on 18 Feb., 
1737, Elisabeth, daughter of Thomas Twigge, esq., of Donny- 
brook ; but dying suddenly on 25 June, 1754, he left (besides 
a daughter, who died unto, in 1792), only two sons, Dive, 
in holy orders, who died S.P. in 1798, and William, born in 
1751, who was m.p., for Co. Donegal, Lord Chief Justice of the 
King's Bench, Vice-Chancellor of Dublin University, and was, 
in 1 822, created Baron Downbs, with remainder, in default of 
issue, to his cousin, Ulysses Burgh, k.o.b. 

Anne, the Bishop's daughter, born as above stated, on the 
day of her father's death, was wife to Thomas Burgh, esq., of 
Bert House, Co. Kildare, and bore to him, inter alios, Thomas 
Burgh, esq., of Bert House, who, by Anne, dau. of David 
Aigoin, esq., had issue Ulysses Burgh, a Lieutenant-General 
in the Army, K.T.8., k.o.b., k.a.s., <fcc, <fcc, who became, in 1826, 
the second and last Lord Dowmes. This peer married, firstly, in 
1815, Maria, only dau. and heir of Walter Bagenal, e6q., and 
by her, who died in 1842, had two daughters. He married, 
secondly, in 1846, Christophena, relict of John Willis Fleming, 
esq., of Stoneham, Hants, and daughter of James Buchanan, 
esq. ; by her, who died in 1860, Lord Downes had no issue. 
He himself died on 26 July, 1863, when his title became ex- 
tinct. His daughters by his first wife were — Anne, wife of the 
Earl of Clonmell ; and Charlotte, who, on 12th February, 
1851, became the wife of Lieutenant-Colonel James Colborne, 
eldest son of Field Marshal Lord Seaton, by Elisabeth, dau. of 
the Rev. James Yonge, Rector and Patron of Newton Ferrers, 
Co. Devon. The Field Marshal Lord Seaton died on 17 April, 
1863, at Valetta House, Torquay, and was buried on the 24th, 
at Newton Ferrers. Colonel Seaton then became the second 
Lord Seaton , but unhappily his wife, having given birth to 
twin children (Charlotte- Maria- Ann etta, and James-Graham- 
Ulysses-Raymond), three days after the death of her veteran 
father-in-law, herself died, aged 37, at the same place, on 26 
April, 1863 (having been only nine days in possession of ber 
title), and was interred at the Cemetery, Torquay. 
1709/10. Peter Browne, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cork and 
Ross by letters patent of 11 January, 1709/10, and was conse- 
crated in the Chapel of T.C.D. on 8 April following, by William, 
Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by the Bishops of Meath, Kil- 
dare, and Clogher. [Ware and Cotton.] 

Peter Browne, son of Richard Browne, entered T.C.D. on 1 6 
June, 1682, having been educated under Mr. Crowe. His 


College Tutor was Benjamin Scroggs. He was a Fellow of 
T.C.D. from 1692 to lu<J9, and Provost of that University from 
1699 to 1709. He was a Lecturer at St. Bridget's, Dublin, 
having been licensed on 25 Nov., 1692, to be coadjutor quoad 
predicandum of James Duncan, the curate of that parish. 
Browne was then in Priest's orders. In 1697, when St. Mary's 
parish was formed by Act of Parliament, Browne was appointed 
the first rector of St. Mary's, and on 4 May, " Peter Browne, 
b.d., received a certificate of having taken the oath of alle- 
giance to King William." He resigned St. Mary's on 9 Nov., 
1699, when he became Provo6t. [Dublin Universi y Calendar, 
and MSS. Consistorial Office, Dublin.] 

Soon after his appointment to these Sees, Browne obtained 
a commission of dilapidations on the house at Bishop's court, 
which reported, on 8 August, 1710, that the roof, walls, &c.,were 
rotten and defective through decay, and that the " foundation 
of ye south wall of ye chapell was undermined," <kc. On the 10 
May, 1710, the Archbishop of Cashel certifies that £89 6s. 4c?. 
was necessary to rebuild the stable at Bishop's court, and in 
November following he certifies £20 10*. to be the value of 
" Trees and Greens, all left growing at Bishop's court at the 
time of Bishop Dive Downes' death." The inventory is ae 
follows: — "87 greens, £2 2s. 6d. ; 19 Plums, Cherryes and 
Peach es, 9a. 6tf. ; 10 Plums and Pears, 5*. ; 60 Plums, Pears, 
and Apples, £\ 10s ; 3 Poplar trees, 3*. ; 22 Walnuts, Chest- 
nuts, &c £\ 2b. ; 146 Walnuts, Chestnuts, Apples, £7 6«. ; 
24filburd trees, XI; 72 apple trees, £S 12*. ; 120 yards of holly 
hedges, £3." [D.R.] The Bishop made some improvements 
at Bishop's court, in Cork, of considerable value, and expended 
upwards of £2,000 on a country house, and improvements at 
Ballinaspic or Bishops'-town, near Cork, which he built for a 
summer retreat, and left to his successors free of charge. His 
improvements on the See-house were likewise free of charge 
to his successors. [Ware.] 

Browne was an austere, retired, and mortified Man, but a 
Prelate of the first rank for Learning among his Brethren, and 
was esteemed the best Preacher of his age for the Gracefulness 
of his Manner, and a fine Elocution. He studied and was 
Master of the most exact and just Pronunciation, heightened 
by the sweetest and most solemn Tone of Voice, and set off by 
a serious air, and a venerable Person : all which united com- 
manded the most awful attention in his hearers of all sorts. 
He was eminent for his critical Skill in the Greek and Hebrew, 
which enabled hirn to explain the Beauty, Energy, and Subli- 
mity of the Sacred Writings to great advantage : and as he 
had formed himself upon the best Models of Antiquity, he 
quickly introduced a true taste of Eloquence into that Society 
of which he was a Member and Head, and utterly banished 


that false glitter of Shining Thought, and idle affectation of 
Points and Turns which reigned before in the Sermons of their 
most eminent Preachers, by shewing how contemptible they 
were compared with the Solidity and Dignity which dis- 
covered themselves in his plainer but more correct and nervous 
Periods. Yet, after all, his most distinguished Talent was that 
of inspiring true Piety into the Hearts of all that heard him 
preach or pray ; his Heart was full of it, and his whole Air, 
Manner, and Tone of Voice (whether in the Pulpit or at the 
Altar) breathed and inspired it pure and fervent. 

The Liturgy of the Church of Ireland was seen in a new 
light of Beauty and Excellency when he officiated, and more 
particularly the Communion Service was felt and confessed by 
every Man that heard it from his mouth to be an Heavenly 

His whole Life was one uniform Tenor of Piety and true 
Religion. He expended vast Sums on Charitable uses, but 
took particular pains to keep the knowledge of them private. 
Even those who were relieved knew not the Hand from whence 
their assistance came. He made it a rule never to trust any 
Person to convey his Charity a second time who had once 
divulged what he desired should be kept secret from all the 
World. By his generous Encouragement several Churches 
were rebuilt and repaired, and a handsome publick Library, 
with a large room for a Charity School, erected near his 
Cathedral. Although these good Works were not entirely 
done at his own expense, yet he was the most considerable 
Contributor to them ; and in such cases his most intimate 
friends could seldom discover the amount of his disbursements. 

He always lamented the want of convenient Glebes and 
Habitations for his Clergy, of which his Diocese was more 
defective than most other parts of the Kingdom, and this mis- 
fortune he remedied at no small Expense, as far as opportunity 
offered. He was strict in obliging his Clergy to residence 
where there were Mansion-Houses or Conveniences for habi- 
tation to be had in their Parishes : But when, for want of 
such, it was very incommodious to them to reside, he dispensed 
therewith : In such cases he was satisfied with their being fixed 
as near their Parish Churches as possible. [Ware.] 

Bishop Browne (in his will, dated 22 July, 1735, and proved 
on 7 Oct, 1 735), left £3,000 to his relative, Elisabeth Russell; 
and in case she went to live with her mother, or died be- 
fore the age of twenty-one, or died unmarried, or married 
without the consent of the clergyman under whose care he 
left her, then he bequeathed one-third of the said £3,000 
to be laid out in purchase of an annuity for the keeper of 
the library of St Finbarry, and one-third to purchase books, 
and one-third for the benefit of the widows of clergymen, 


according to the direction of his successors. He left, also, 
£20 to the poor of the parish of St. Finbarry, and £100 for 
clothing poor children and putting them out apprentices. He 
left a portion of his books to the Cathedral library, and his 
manuscripts to his nephew, Archdeacon Thomas RusselL His 
cousin, Peter Waterhouse, Precentor of Cork, was appointed 
trustee. His bequest of Ballinaspig to the See of Cork is as 
follows : — " I leave and bequeath all my improvements of 
" Bishop's Court, in Cork, to my Successors, Bishops of Cork, 
" and also all my buildings and improvements at Ballinaspeg, 
" or Bishopstown — my intention in which last buildings and 
" improvements, and in reserving 118a. out of the lease for 
" the use of the dwelling House built by me therefore was, 
" that it may be always a convenient country retirement for 
" all my successors, Bishops of Cork, and for that reason 1 have 
" builded and consecrated a Chapel for their perpetual use, in 
" the good hopes that none of any of my successors will ever 
u frustrate that my design." [Dublin Wills.] 

The Manuscript Catalogue of the library of Bishop Peter 
Browne is now among the collections of Richard Caulfield, esq., 
F.S.A., Cork. It is a small quarto, bound in vellum, written by 
the Bishop ; and on the back, " Catalogue of Books belonging 
to Peter, Ld. Bp. of Cork." The library was rich in Patristic 

Bishop Browne died at Cork, on 25 August, 1735, and was 
buried at Ballin aspic. His portrait is preserved in the See- 
hoose of Cork. 

The following is a report of an examination of the Leaden 
Coffins of Bishops Peter Brown and Isaac Mann, at Ball in a* pic, 
made by Richard Caulfield, F.8.A., and communicated by him 
to Notes and Queries, 2nd S. xi., p. 104 et seqq. : — "Some 
years ago a report got into circulation, on the evidence of 
a farm labourer at Ballinaspic (Anglic^, Bishopstown), about 
two miles from Cork, that the vault under the Episcopal 
Chapel there (now a dairy), had been desecrated, and the leaden 
coffins which contained the remains of Bishops Browne and 
Mann, stolen. This story spread far and wide, and though 
most people believed it nevertheless, 1 always had my doubts 
as to the value of the evidence on which the report was 
grounded. Every one who knows the Irish character is aware 
that in matters concerning the dead they always exhibit a 
feeling of intense reverence and respect, even amounting to 
superstition. In this case it remained to be proved. 1 may 
here mention that Ballinaspic was formerly the country resi- 
dence of the Bishops of Cork, and only passed from them when 
the temporalities of the See were vested in the Ecclesiastical 
Commissioners. The chapel was built by the munificence of 
Bishop Peter Browne, for the benefit of his successors, in 1730, 


as the following inscription on a stone in the western wall 
inside the building testifies : — 

" Hoc 
Sacellum aedificavit 
Oorcagiensis et Rossensis 

Anno Domini MDCCXXX, 
Solemniter coneecravit 
die Septembris, XXIX." 

This little chapel is 30 feet long by 16 in breadth ; the side 
walls are 12 feet 6 in. in height ; the gables are 20 feet in 
height. On the eastern gable is the belfry, concealed in the 
ivy, which gracefully creeps up the chancel. It was lit by two 
windows in each of the side walls and the chancel; at the 
western side is a small porch, 7 feet square and 10 feet high. 
This is ascended by a semicircular flight of five steps of cut 
limestone, with which material the corners of the building, <fec, 
are faced. In the centre of the court-yard is the Crown and 
Mitre set in the pavement with a yellow-coloured stone, which 
has a very pretty effect. The old episcopal residence no longer 
exists. The present dwelling-house is quite a modern build- 
ing. The other memorials of Bishop Browne are a small 
circular edifice, intended as a retreat. It is built on a rock a 
short distance N.W. of the chapel, and was once ornamented 
with various shells, and some vitrified substance of a dark blue 
colour. It is most probable that here this learned prelate used 
to retire for meditation, and penned his work on The Procedure^ 
Extent, and Limits of Human Understanding, Lond.,1729, which 
is said [erroneously, vide infra"] to have furnished Bishop 
Butler with the ideas which were subsequently developed in 
his celebrated work on the Analogy of Religion. Two neat 
arches span the Bishop's brook, which runs within a hundred 
yards of the residence, and give an extremely romantic appear- 
ance to the whole. I am particular in these details, as the place 
was near being demolished some years ago, when in the hands of 
an ignorant and unprincipled tenant. Bishop Brown also con- 
structed large ponds here, and he is said to have introduced 
pike into the stream — a fish which he was particularly fond of. 
A short time since I represented to John Lewis, esq., the pre- 
sent proprietor of Bishopstown, the importance of setting this 
matter regarding the Bishops at rest. Mr. Lewis immediately 
concurred in my views of the subject, and appointed Saturday, 
the 12th of the current month, to carry out the investigation. 
The following particulars are from the note-book used on the 
occasion : — 

"Jan. 12, 1861. — This morning, a little after 6 o'clock, Mr. 


Lewis set three labourers to clear away the earth which filled 
up the space between the steps and the entrance to the vault 
nnder the chancel of the Episcopal Chapel at Bisbopstown. In 
about three hours this work was accomplished, and the space 
cleared, when a very large and weighty flag presented itself, 
fixed upright, and closing securely the entrance to the vault. 
This, after much difficulty and the assistance of two other men, 
we got in an inclined position against the steps, and then 
descended, by means of a ladder placed against the flag, into 
the vault, which is 14 feet long by 8 broad, and 6 feet 2 in. high, 
and paved with square flags. On procuring candles we dis- 
covered the two coffins at the upper end of the chamber lying 
side by side about two feet apart, and resting on two low walls 
made of brick. The timber of the outer coffins had completely 
decayed, and lay on the ground as it fell off, like a thick mould. 
The lead coffins were quite perfect, and evidently had never 
been disturbed. The first coffin examined was that of Bishop 
P. Browne. On the lid, embedded in the decayed timber, we 
found the plate, which required the greatest care to touch, as 
it was quite corroded, and not much thicker than a sheet of 
paper. This we succeeded in raising. It was originally 
square, and in the centre was an oval with a bead pattern, 
within which were the letters 'P. C. & R. 1735.* As the lid 
of this coffin had never been soldered, and had yielded a little 
to the weight of the decayed timber that lay on it, it was found 
necessary to take it off (to replace it in its proper position, 
and exclude the drops of water which fell from the ceiling near 
it), when all that was mortal of Bishop Browne presented itself. 
There was no appearanco of an inner shell. The body was 
placed in the lead, enveloped in folds of linen, which was not 
in the slightest degree discoloured. The body was nearly 
eutire from the middle up ; so perfect were the features, that 
any one who had seen bit* portrait at the Palace of Cork, would 
readily have detected the resemblance. The lid was then 
carefully replaced. The outer coffin must have been originally 
adorned with escutcheons, as the remains of such decorations 
were found mixed up with the decayed timber. The massive 
brass handles were as perfect as ever. Bishop Mann's coffin 
must have been originally studded with thousands of small 
nails. The leaden coffin is in the highest state of preservation. 
On the lid was a mitre of brass, and below it a large brass 
plate, quite sound, with this inscription : — 

" The Right Revd. 
Isaac Mann, 


Lord Bishop 
of Cork and Ross, 
Died 10th Deer., 1788, 
Aged 77." 


" Both the mitre And plate were gilt. The coffin was closely 
soldered all round. Bishop Browne's coffin is 5 feet 8 in. long, 
21^ in. across the shoulders, and 11 inches in .depth. Bishop 
Mann's coffin is 6 feet 2 in. long, 22 £ in. across the shoulders, 
and 15 in. in depth." After the investigation, which occupied 
over an hour, the flag was carefully replaced, and the earth 
filled in as before. There formerly existed a monument to the 
memory of Bishop Peter Browne in the chapel, but being 
formed of some perishable material, such as plaster of Paris, it 
gradually crumbled away after the roof fell in. The building 
is now thatched with straw. The marble monument of Bishop 
Mann was removed to the porch of the Cathedral Church of St. 
Finn Barrs, Cork, in 1848. To some interesting particulars 
relating to Bishop Mann, which appeared in " N. and Q. (2nd 
S. x. 143), I may add the testimony of a respectable old man, 
who died some years ago. He told me he had a distinct 
recollection of Bishop Mann's funeral, and that as it passed 
from the Palace by the Glasheen road (where he resided) to 
Bishopstown, the choir of the Cathedral, which preceded the 
coffin, were chanting dirges, followed by the prebendaries, both 
in surplices ; and that the parochial clergy followed the coffin 
in academic costume, with a numerous retinue of citizens. 
[R. Caulfield.] 

Peter Browne was the author of the following works : — 

1. A Letter in answer to a Book, entitled, " Christianity not 
mysterious ; as also, to all those who set up for Reason and 
Evidence in Opposition to Revelation and Mysteries." Dublin : 
1697. 8vo. Mr. Brown was put upon writing this Answer 
to Mr. Toland'e Book (which then made a great noise), by 
Narcissus, Archbishop of Dublin, who so much prized the Per- 
formance that he ever after stood firm to the Interests of the 
Author, and procured him the Provostship of the College, and 
afterwards the Bishoprick of Cork. Mr. Toland used jestingly 
to say that it was he who made Browne Bishop of Cork, meaning 
that his Book was the Occasion of it 

2. A Sermon preached at St Bride's, Dublin, April 17th, 
1G98, "Upon Occasion of a Resolution taken in the City of 
Dublin of putting the Laws in Execution against Vice and 
Immoralities." Dublin : 1698. 8vo. 

After be was Bishop he writ the following Books, viz. : — 

3. " Of Drinking in Remembrance of the Dead, being the 
Substance of a Discourse delivered to the Clergy of the Diocese 
of Cork." Dublin: 1713. 12mo. 

4. "A Second Part of Drinking in Remembrance of the 
Dead, wherein the most material Objections made against the 
first Part are answered." Dublin: 1714. 12mo. 

5. " An Answer to a Right Reverend Prelate's Defence of 


Eating and Drinking to the Memory of the Dead, occasioned by 
the Bishop of Cork's second Part," Ac. Dublin : 1715. 12mo. 

6. " The Doctrine of Parts and Circumstances in Religion 
laid open." 1715. 12mo. 

7. " A Discourse of Drinking Healths ; wherein the great 
Evil of the Custom is shewn." Dublin : 1716. 

8. " A Sermon preached at St. Andrew's Church, Dublin, 
1716, for the Benefit of the Charity-School. — Mark xii. v. 43, 
44." Dublin : 1716. 8vo. 

9. " Faith distinguished from Opinion and Science. In some 
Remarks upon a Book lately published by the Lord Bishop of 
Raphoe, eutitled * A plain and easy Method whereby a Man 
of a Moderate Capacity may arrive at full satisfaction in all 
Things that concern his everlasting Salvation.' " Dublin : 1716. 

10. " A Letter to a Gentleman in Oxford on the subject of 
Health Drinking." 1722. 

11. " The Procedure, Extent, and Limits of Human Under- 
standing." London and Dublin : 1728. 8vo. This Tract is 
levelled at the Socinians and Deists, and is an Improvement of 
his answer to Toland. Bishop Browne was thought by some to 
have in this work furnished Butler with the ideas or plan of 
the " Analogy ;" but a high authority (Dr. Fitzgerald, Bp. of 
Killaloe) informs me that he knows of no grounds for sup- 
posing Butler to have been in any way indebted to Browne. 
" There is (says Bishop Fitzgerald) " a good deal of Resem- 
blance between a page or two of Browne's work on Theories and 
a short passage in Butler's Introduction. There is also a resem- 
blance between the two Books in what they say of natural 
causes and effects. But in both these cases, when the Books 
have such matter in common, other older writings might be 
pointed out, from which (if it is needful to give such an account 
of coincidences of correct thought among able and reflecting 
men) it might have been derived. There is nothing in Browne's 
works that was likely to have suggested the general plan and 
argument of Butler's Analogy. Browne wrote * The Divine 
Analogy,' but it is on quite a different subject from that of 
Butler's Analogy." [Letter of Bp. Fitzgerald.] 

12. " Things Divine and Supernatural conceived by Analogy 
with Things Natural and Human. 9 ' London : 1733. 

He left several Pieces behind him in manuscript, which (as 
Ware was informed) are these, viz. : — 

13. '* Divine Analogy ; volume the ii.," which is intended to 
be published, but with another Title. 

14. "Two Tracts in 8 vo. against Hereticks and Infidels." 
They are very imperfect, and few materials left to complete 
them ; yet I hear they will some Time or other be fitted to 


15. " A Tract on the Three Holy Orders of the Church." It 
is not quite finished, hut Hopes are given that it will soon be 

16. "A Comment on Select Texts of Scripture relating to 
the Divinity of our Saviour/* This Piece is very unfinished, 
but materials left to com pleat a good Part of it. 

17. " The Use and Abuse of Metaphysicks in Religion." 
This Tract is very near finished ; but will be submitted to 

the Learned in both Kingdoms before it be made publick. 

18. " Some charges to the Clergy." Intended to be pub- 

19. " Several Sermons against the Socinians and other 
Hereticks, and upon other Subjects." Intended to be pub- 

N.B. — The Bishop burned in his Life-time very many Ser- 
mons, which he thought unfinished, as not fit to be read, in 
Manuscript or Print. He was a most severe Judge of his own 
Works. [Ware's Writers.] 

His " Sermons on various Subjects" were published after his 
death, in 2 vols. 8vo. London, 1749. 
1735. Robert Clayton, d.d., was translated from the Bishopric of 
Killala to that of Cork and Ross, by the Kind's letter, dated 
Nov. 22, and patent, dated 19 Dec, 1735. [Pat. Rot. Cane] 

Robert Clayton, of the family of Clayton of Fulwood, near 
Preston, Lancashire, was born in England in 1695. His father 
was John Clayton, p.d., Dean of Kildare. 

He was educated at Westminster School, under the tutor- 
ship of Zachary Pearce, afterwards Bishop of Rochester, and 
afterwards entered T.C.I) , on 25 June, 1710, being then 15 
years old, and in 1714 became a Fellow of that University. 
In 1724 he became Senior Fellow ; but resigned on the 17th of 
June, 1728, the day of his marriage with Katberine, daughter 
of Lord Chief Baron Don n el Ian. . He graduated d.d. in 1729. 

On the 23 January, 1729/30, Clayton was appointed by let- 
ters patent Bishop of Killala and Achonry, to which Sees he 
was consecrated on 10 May, 1730. From 1735 to 1745 he 
was Bishop of Cork ; and from 1745 to 1758 was Bishop of 

Robert Clayton was " remarkable for liberality in money mat- 
ters. Having married the daughter of Chief Justice Donnellan, 
he gave that lady's portion to her sister, and settled on his own 
three sisters double the sum which was bequeathed to them by 
their father's will. Such was his generosity, that upon a person 
in distressed circumstances applying to him for relief, he gave 
him £300, which was all the object of his bounty required to 
make him comfortable forlife. This act came to the knowledge of 
Queen Caroline, through the intervention of Dr. Samuel Clarke, 
whose Arian principles he imbibed." [Memoirs of Viscountess 


Sundon, Mistress of the Robes to Queen Caroline, Consort of 
George II., by Mrs. Thompson. Vol. ii. p. 3.] 

Clayton was introduced to Lord Carteret, Lord Lieutenant 
of Ireland, by Mrs. Clayton, wife of Mr. Robert Clayton, a near 
relative of the Bishop's, who was a Commissioner of Revenue, 
and was, in 1735, created Baron Sundon of Ardagh. The 
Baron's wife was Mistress of the Robes to Caroline of Branden- 
berg-Anspach, Consort of George II. 

Bishop Clayton wrote the following works : — 

1. "An Assize Sermon, preached at Cork on 15th April, 
1739." 4to. Cork. 

2. "A Letter in the Philosophical Transactions, No. 461, p. 
813, giving an account of a Frenchman, seventy years old (at 
Inishannon, county Cork), who gave suck to a child." 

3. " The Chronology of the Hebrew Bible Vindicated," <fec.

again, translated from a MS. written by the Prefettoof Egypt, 
in company with some Missionaries de propaganda fide at

Hieroglyphics, and the Mythology of the ancient Heathen." 
8voand4to. 1753. 

9. " Some Thoughts on Self Love, Innate Ideas, Freewill, 
Taste, Sentiments, Liberty, and Necessity, <fcc., occasioned by 
reading Mr. Hume's Works, and the short Treatise written in 
French by Lord Bolingbroke, on Compassion." 8vo. 1754. 

10. "A Vindication of the Histories of the Old and New 
Testament." Part ii. 8vo. 1754. 

11. "Letters between the Bishop of Clogher and Mr. Wil- 
liam Penn, concerning Baptism." 8vo. 1755. 

12. "A Speech made in the House of Lords in Ireland, on

Athanasian Creeds out of the Liturgy," <fcc. 8vo. 1756. 

13. "A Vindication," <fec. Part iii. 8vo. 1758. The 
three parts of the "Vindication," with the "Essay on Spirit," 
were reprinted by Mr. Bowyer in 1 volume; 8vo. ; 1759; 
with notes and an index. 

The Arian tenets avowed in these writings were so palpable 
and offensive, that an Ecclesiastical Commission was formed to 


bring the Bishop to trial ; bat before any examination took 
place he died, at his bouse in Stephen's-green, Dublin, of a 
fever occasioned by his alarm, on February 26, 1758. There 
is a portrait of bim in the Palace of Cork. His bust is in 
T.C.D. Library. 

Bishop Clayton's "Introduction to the History of the Jews, 
from the Deluge till the death of Moses/ 1 was translated into 
French, and published at Leyden in 1751. 

Bishop Clayton was buried at Donnybrook, under a stone, 
inscribed as follows : — 

" Here lyeth ye Body of 

Doctor Robert Clayton Lord Bishop of Clogher 

who was born in the year 1695 

and was elected Fellow of Trinity College in 1714. 

He resigned bis Fellowship in the year 1728 ; 

and the same year 
married Eatherine daughter of Lord Cheife 
Baron Donnellan. He was promoted to the 
Bishoprick of Killala in the year 1729 
and died in 1758 
In the 64th year of his age. 
To enumerate all his good amiable qualities 
Would take up too much roome 
For this place. 
His character as a Christian, and abilities 
as a writer, appear by his works. 
He lived esteemed by good men, 
He died regretted by many, 
Most lamented by his afflicted Widow." 

Bishop Clayton had no issue. He left his estate of Fulwood, 
in Lancashire, to his male heir, Richard Clayton, of Adlington, 
in Lancashire, and Chief Justice of the Common Pleas in Ire- 
land, from whose brother, John, descends the present family of 
Clayton-Browne, of Adlington, and of Carrickbyrne, county 

Elisabeth Clayton, sister of the Bishop, became the Wife of 
William Browne, esq., of Browne's Hill, county Carlow, the 
ancestor of Clayton-Bbownh of Adlington already mentioned, 
and of the family of Browne, of Browne's Hill. 

The grandfather of the Bishop was, I believe, Robert Clay- 
ton, of Fulwood, who married Eleanor Atherton ; but there is 
considerable confusion in the various published accounts of the 
pedigree of this ancient family. The following is from Debrett's 
Baronetage : — Robert de Clayton came into England with 
Willm. Conq. ; was born at Cordevee, in Normandy, and for his 
laudable services had the manor of Clayton, in Lane, given 


him. He had 3 sons — John, William, and Robert, and 2 
daurs. . . , William, 2nd son of Robert, served E. Stephen 
in many troubles, particularly when Ranulph, Earl of Chester, 
and many others, took possession of London. A very obsti- 
nate battle was fought on Candlemas day, where, " Qod wot, 
William de Clayton lost bis life in 1 HI." The 24th in lineal 
descent from him was Dr. Robert Clayton. 
1745. Jsmmet Browne, d.d., was translated from the Bishopric of 
Killaloe to that of Cork and Ross, by patent dated August 27th, 
1745. [Lib. Man.] He was enthroned on 6 Sept [D.R.] 
In 1772 he was moved to Elphin, and in 1775 became Arch- 
bishop of Tuam. His parentage, preferments, marriages, issue, 
death, <fcc, are detailed under the " Deans of Roes," vol. ii., 
pages 428-9. 

While Bishop of Cork he published a "Fast Sermon," 
preached in Christ-church, Dublin, on Deo., 18, 1745. 4to. 
Dublin, 1746. 

Archbishop Browne was buried at Cork. The following is 
from the Registry of St, Finbar's Cathedral :— " Buried, 1782, 
June 17, His Grace Jem met t, by Divine Providence, Lord Arch- 
bishop of Tuam, in a vault under the church." 

The following, from the Registry of Cashel, refers to the 
Ballinaspig estate : — 

1745. Nov. 1. Upon this day Robert, Bishop of Clogher, 
wrote unto the Archbishop of Cashel. 

u My Lord, — 

" Enclosed herewith is the lease of Ballinaspeg, which 
" the owner, Mr. William Lindsay, resigns unto your Grace's 
" hands, in trust for the use of the See, and entirely refers it 
" to your Grace's consideration how that may most effectually 
44 be done. The Bishop of Cork proposed giving a bond of 
" £1,000 not to get it for longer than during his own Incum- 
" bency, which is humbly submitted to your Grace by 

" Tour most obedt. humble servant, 

" Robt. Clogher." 

1 745. Dec. 9. Dr. Jemmett Browne, Bishop of Cork and Ross, 
passed his bond of this date to Arthur, Archbishop of Cashel 
for £1,000, conditioned that if he should, during the time be 
should be Bishop of Cork, continue to keep in his own hands 
or otherwise to possess and enjoy the dwelling-house and lands 
of Ballinaspeg, as the same had been lately enjoyed by the 2 
last Bishops of Cork, without said present Bishop making any 
lease of same other than for any time during his continuing 
Bishop of Cork, said bond to be void, or otherwise to remain 
in full force. 
1772. Isaac Mann, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cork and Ross by 


King's lioense, dated at St. James's, 27th January, and by 
patent of March 7, 1772. [Pat. Rot. Cane] 

Isaac Mann was born at Norwich in 1710, and was brought 
to Ireland when very young, being supported by Lord Chan- 
cellor Jocelvn. [Todd's MSS.] He was educated at T.C.D., 
where he obtained a Scholarship in 1730. 

In 1741, Nov. 4, Mann was. appointed to the Chaplaincy of 
St. Matthew's, Bingsend, Dublin, and to the Rectory of &il~ 
lavery, Meath. Both these preferments he resigned about 
1751, when he became Vicar of St. Andrew's, Dublin. He 
was, from 1749 to 1772, Precentor of Christ Church, Dublin ; 
from 1757 to 1772, Archdeacon of Dublin ; and from 1769 to 
1772, Second Canon of Kildare. He was raised to the See of 
Cork in 1772 by favour of Lord Townsskd, Lord Lieutenant, 
to whom he was Chaplain, and was consecrated in the Castle 
Chapel, Dublin, by the Primate, assisted by the Bishops of 
Waterford aud Limerick. 

On 4 Oct., 1781, Bishop Mann petitioned the Archbishop of 
Cashel for leave to change the site of the See-house at Cork, 
and to build a new mansion-house ; and this memorial was 
approved by his Grace of Cashel on 26 Oct., 1781. On 25 
May, 1786, the Bishop renounced all claim to charges on foot of 
the old See-house, and on 5th April, 1786, a commission to 
view the new See-house issues and makes its report on 30 
May, 1786. This report states that the Bishop of Cork was 
then in Bath, for the recovery of his health, and was therefore 
not examined; and the commissioners find that he bad ex- 
pended, on a gross calculation, £5,330 11*. 11M, but by 
measurement, £4,833 0*. 9£<f.; and they find the value of 
the See to be £2,440 and upwards. One of the items in 
the account was the following : — "To 3 years and 7 weeks 
salary paid to Master-builder, or general inspector of the whole 
works, at £80 per annum — £250 15*. 3d" The Archbishop 
certified for the amount of £4,833 0«. 9ld. on 10 June, 1786. 

Bishop Mann was author of — 1. " The Four Gospels and the 
Acts of the Apostles, with notes explanatory and practical, for 
the use of schools." 12mo. Dublin: 1781. 

2. " A Familiar Exposition of the Church Catechism," which 
has been frequently reprinted by the Society for promoting 
Christian Knowledge. 

He died at Bath" on 10 Dec., 1788, and his remains were 
conveyed from Bristol to Cork, and deposited for a few days 
at the Palace, whence they were brought to Ballinaspio, and 
there interred, on 31 Dec, 1788. For an account of the 
funeral, and of the coffin, <fcc., v-ide supra page 71-4. 

The monument was removed from Ballinaspic to the north 


side of the porch of Cork Cathedral in 1849. The following 
is the inscription : — 

" The Remains of 
Isaac Mann, d.d., r 

Bishop of Cork and Ross, 
are deposited in a vault underneath. 
He died at Bath, 10 Decmb., 1788, 
aged 77. 
Through respect to the memory of his beloved and 
much honored uncle, and as a small mark of grati- 
tude for his goodness to Him, Saml. Mann 
has caused this little monument to be 
placed here." 

1789. Busbby Cleaver, d.d., son of the Rev. William Cleaver, was 
born at the rectory of Twyford, near Buckingham, on Sept. 8, 
1745. He was younger brother of Dr. William Cleaver, Bishop 
of Chester, and afterwards of St Asaph. In 1759 he was ad- 
mitted a King's Scholar at Westminster ; from whence he was 
elected a Student of Christ Church, Oxford, in 1763; M.A. in 
1770; b.d. and d.d. in 1783. In 1774 he became Rector of Spof- 
forth, in Yorkshire ; in 1 783 Rector of Petworth, in Sussex ; 
and in 1787 a Prebendary of Chichester. In 1789, being then 
Chaplain to the Marquess of Buckingham, Lord Lieutenant of 
Ireland, he was promoted to the Sees of Cork and Ross. His 
patent bears date March 28. He was consecrated on the same 
day (Saturday), at the Castle Chapel, Dublin, by Charles, Arch- 
bishop of Cashel, assisted by the Bishops of Waterford and 
Cloyne. He remained here only a very few months, being 
translated to Leighlin and Ferns in the following June, and 
again, to Dublin, in 1809. [Family Papers.] 

He married in May, 1788, Catherine, dau. of the Right 
Honble. Owen Wynne, m.p., of Hazlewood, and by her had two 
sons, who both entered into holy orders. William, born on the 
day of his father's consecration to the See of Cork, was the 
eldest son. He was P. Donoghmore, St. Patrick's, Dublin, and 
afterwards Rector of Delgany, near Dublin. 
1789. William Fobteb, m.a., was appointed Bishop of Cork and 
Ross by King's Licence, dated St James's, June 5, and by patent 
of June 13th, 1789. [Pat Rot Cane.] 

W. Foster (son of Anthony Foster, Chief Baron of the Ex- 
chequer), was brother of the Speaker of the Irish House of 
Commons, created afterwards Lord Oriel. 

He was born in 1744, and from 1770 to 1780 was R. Ard- 
braccan, Meatb ; from 1780 to 1789 was R. Urney, Derry ; 
and from 1781 to 1789 was R. Louth, Armagh. He was 
Chaplain to the House of Commons. 

He was consecrated Bishop of Cork and Ross on 14 June, 
tol. in. a 


1789, in St. Peter's Church at Dublin, by the Archbishop of 
Dublin, assisted by the Bishops of Dromore and Ossory. In 
1790 he was translated to Kilmore ; and in 1796 to Clogher, 
where he died in 1797.. 
1790. WilIiam Bennbt, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cork and 
Rose by King's licence, dated at St. James's, 7 May, and by 
patent dated June 12, 1790. [Pat. Rot. Cane] He was 
consecrated on 13 June, in the Chapel Royal, Dublin Castle, by 
the Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops of Killaloe 
and Eillala. [Cotton.] In June, 1794, Bennet was translated 
to the See of Oloyne, where see a further account of him. 

The following from the Cashel Registry refers to the estate 
of Ballinaspig : — 

" 1792. May 24. The Archbishop's certificate, under 32 Geo. 
" III., of the expenses incurred in Suits for defeating the Lease 
" of Ballinaspeg, mentioned in said Act, and of said Act — 

" By Bishop Bennet, . . £269 3 6 

" By Bishop Foster (Kilmore), . 74 7 6J 

"And by Bishop Bennet in obtaining 

said Act, . . . 434 6 9J 

£777 17 10" 

1794. The Honorable Thomas Stopford, d.d., was appointed Bishop 
of Cork and Ross by King's licence, dated St. James's, May 20, 
and by patent dated 28 June, 1794. [Pat. Rot. Cane] 

Thomas Stopford (the third son of the first Earl of Courtown) 
was, from 1764 to 1794, R. Painstown and Ardinulchan, Meath; 
from 1781 to 1787, Dean of Killaloe ; and from 1787 to 1794, 
Dean of Ferns. He held, also, the R. Kiltenncl, in Ferns. 

He was consecrated to these Sees on 29 June, 1794, by the 
Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops of Ossory and 
Killala. [Cotton.] 

On 8th September, 1794, Bishop Stopford petitioned the 
Archbishop of Cashel to grant a commission of dilapidation, 
stating " that by an Act of Parliament (31 Geo. III.), 118 acres 
of the lauds of Ballinaspig, with the buildings and improvements 
thereon, were annexed as mensal lands to the See of Cork," and 
that memorialist was "charged with £1,390 17*. IQd. for ex- 
penses incurred by Bennet (the late Bishop) in obtaining said 
lands and said Act of Parliament." The Archbishop, on the 
return of the commission, 10 Nov., 1 794, certifies for £75 9s. 4£<i. 
as the amount of dilapidation. [D.R.] 

He died, unm., in Dublin, at the family residence in Kil dare- 
street, and was buried on 21st January, 1805, at St. Andrew's, 
Dublin, in accordance with a desire expressed in his will, 
which was dated 1 May, 1797, and was proved in Dublin, 15th 
August) 1805. 


The charitable bequests of this prelate were numerous. He 
left to the poor of the parish where he may be buried (except 
in Dublin, Cork, Gorey, or Kiltennel), £25, to form a beginning 
for a sinking fund for their benefit, the interest to be given by 
the parish Minister. 

To the poor of Kiltennel parish (dioo. Ferns), £100, besides 
£100 left by his father to the same, with a recommendation to 
the Rector to apply the interest only. 

To the poor of Kilmicbelogue, Kilnahne, and K ilea van, 
Ferns, £100 (in addition to £100 given in 1794), the principal 
to be lent out, and the interest to be distributed by the Dean of 

To the Dean of Cork, £100 (the interest only to be distri- 
buted), and 100 spinning-wheels, at 7«. 6rf. each, to be given 
to 100 of the poorest women of his parish by the Dean or his 

He left all his books to the Library of St Finbarry, and 
desired that his manuscript sermons should be burned. 
1805. Loan John George Beresford, d.d., was appointed Bishop 
of Cork and Ross by King's licence dated St. James's, 13 Feb., 
and by patent dated 20 Feb., 1805. [Rot. Pat. Cane] He 
was consecrated at St. Patrick's, Dublin, on 24 March, by the 
Archbishop of Cash el, assisted by the Bishops of Derry and 
Clogher. In 1807 he was translated to Raphoe, afterwards to 
Clogher ; thence to Dublin ; and finally to the Primacy. He 
died, universally regretted, in 1862. His life will soon, I 
believe, be given to the public in Dr. Todd's forthcoming work,

1807. The Honorable Thomas St. Lawrence was appointed to 
these Sees by King's licence, dated St. James's, Sept. 3, and 
by patent of 10 Sept, 1807. [Rot. Fat. Cane] He was con- 
secrated on 27 Sept., in St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, by the 
Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by the Bishops of Kildare and 
Kilmore. [Cotton.] 

For an account of this prelate, see under Deans of Cork, vol. 
i., pages 336-7. 

On 25 April, 1818, Bishop St. Lawrence sends a memorial 
to the Archbishop of Cashel concerning the See-house. He 
states that the house was built in 1782 by Bishop Mann, at 
cost of £4,633 0«. 9 jd, and proposes to change the copper on 
roof with lead, at cost of £3*50, and to erect a water closet at a 
cost of £50. On 17 June, 1819, the Commissioners (John 
Leslie, William Thompson, and Joshua Berkeley) report an 
expenditure of £365 Is. Sd. t for which sum the Archbishop 
certifies on 1 July, 1819, the clear yearly value of the See 
being stated to be £3,000. [D.R.] 

Bishop St Lawrence died at the Palace, Cork, on 10 Febru- 
ary, 1831.

1831. Samuel Kyle, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cork and Boss, 
by letters patent of 11 March, 1831. He was consecrated in 
the Chapel of T.C.D., on 27 March, by the Primate, assisted by 
the Bishops of Ferns and Cloyne, and was enthroned at Cork on 
15 April, 1831. Dr. Charles Richard Elrington, f.t.c.d., and 
Regius Professor of Divinity, preached the sermon at his con- 

Samnel Kyle, born in the county of Londonderry, on 12 
Oct., 1770, was the son of Samuel Kyle, Esq., of Dungiven 
Castle, connty Londonderry, whose family came from Scotland 
temp. Elizabeth, and possessed property at Bovevagh, near 
Dungiven. Uis mother, Jane Boyle, was a daughter of Colonel 
Boyle, of Drumcovit, county Derry, by Anne, sister of John 
Torrens, d.d., Rector of Ballynascreen, in the diocese of Derry. 

Having been educated at the Derry diocesan school, under 
the Rev. Thomas Marshall, Kyle, in October, 1788, entered 
T.C.D., where he distinguished himself as an elegant and accu- 
rate Classical Scholar. He was elected a Scholar of the Uni- 
versity in 1791, graduated a.b. in 1793, and was elected Fellow 
in 1798. In the year following he took the degree of a.m., 
and (having been ordained Priest on 18 May, 1800, by the 
Bishop of Killala), in 1808 he took those'of b.d. and d.d. In 
1820, August 2, he was coopted to a Senior Fellowship, and 
on 21 Oct., same year, he was appointed Provost of T.C.D., 
which post he held until he was made Bishop of Cork and Ross 
in 1831. 

On 4 Nov., 1831, Bishop Kyle obtained the certificate of the 
Archbishop of Cashel for £521 Ss. 7d, the amount of dilapi- 
dations suffered by his predecessor. The commission of dilapida- 
tions at the same time found that dilapidations to the amount of 
£1 ,101 18«. 2d. had been permitted on Ballinaspic, but Bishop 
Kyle obtained a repeal of the Act which made Ballinaspic 
me d sal. [D.R.] 

In 1835, on the death of Bishop Brinkley, under the Act 
3 and 4 Wm. IV., o. 37, the See of Cloyne became united to 
those of Cork and Ross, and consequently Bishop Kyle now 
became Bishop of 

Coax, Cloyne, and Ross. 

In 1836, on the death of Bishop Butson, the See of Killaloe 
was offered to Bishop Kyle, but declined by him. His clergy 
on this occasion presented him with an address of thanks. 
They state — " It is now fully understood that a removal to a 
diocese which must have been manageable with less arduous 
responsibility was offered to your Lordship's acceptance, and 
that your continuance in a Diocese attended with greater labour 
and with reduced revenues was materially influenced by regard 


for a Clergy, with whose habits your Lordship had for some 
years been intimately acquainted," <fcc., dec. The Bishop, in 
replying to this Address, observed, that he received it "with 
no common gratification, and trusts that in the futnre dis- 
charge of his Episcopal functions he may not forfeit their good 
opinion." He also observed that the terms in which they 
alluded to his position, and to his conduct generally, as their 
Diocesan, had left " on his mind an impression never to be obli- 

On 17 August, 1837, the Archbishop of Cashel approves of 
the memorial of the Bishop of Cork to expend £200 in stabling, 
<fec. ; and soon after he certifies that the Bishop expended 
£232 14s. \0d., and that the annual value of the See is £2,330, 
independent of the annual sum of £1,500, paid by the Ecclesi- 
astical Commissioners, as compensation to Kyle for life for his 
loss in being removed from his estates in the Dioceses of Cork 
and Ross. [D.R.] 

About the year 1845 Bishop Kyle became, by severe illness, 
incapacitated from attending in person to the affairs of his 
diocese, and entrusted its management almost wholly to his 
son, S. M. Kyle, the Vicar-General. At length, on 18 May, 
1848, he was released from further suffering, dying in Dublin, 
and was buried in the Chapel of T.C.D., where a tablet was 
erected, with the following inscription : — 












A marble bust of the Bishop is in the Library of Trinity 

After his death the Clergy of the United Dioceses assembled, 
on 11 June, 1848, for the purpose of raising a fund to erect a 
tablet to his memory in Cork Cathedral, and to establish an 
Irish Scholarship in T.C.D., in proof of their affectionate regard 
and respect for the memory of one who had presided over his 
extensive Dioceses for so many years, to the advancement of 
Religion and the best interests of the Church. The tablet was 
accordingly erected in Cork Cathedral, with this inscription : 


" Erected by the Clergy of the united diocese of Cork, Cloyne, 
and Ross, to the memory of their late beloved Bishop, the Eight 
Rev. Samuel Kyle, d.d. In affectionate remembrance of whose 
paternal care and many virtues, they have also endowed an 
Irish Scholarship in the University of Dublin. Consecrated 
March 27, 1631. Died May 18, 1848, ared 78." 

The funds collected for the Irish Scholarship were invested 
by the Trustees in Government Securities in Bank Stock, in 
the joint names of the Provost and Senior Fellows of Trinity 
College, Dublin, the Professor of Irish, and the Dean and Arch- 
deacon of Cork. The annual interest forms the " Kyle 'Irish 
Prize," and is limited to Divinity Students, natives of the 
Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, or who may have been 
educated in those dioceses for not less than two years. 

Doctor Kyle married, in 1800, Anne, the eldest daughter of 
William Duke Moore, Esq., of Dublin, and had issue by her 
ten children, viz.: — 1. Samuel Moore Kyle, Archdeacon of Cork, 
q. v. ; 2. William Cotter Kyle, Esq., ll.d. and j.p. He married 
Louisa, dau. and co-heiress of John Rea, Esq., of St Columb's, 
county Londonderry, and has issue four sons and two daughters. 
3. Henry Stopford Kyle, Esq., called to the English Bar. He 
was in 1836 appointed Commissary and Surrogate in the 
absence of the Vicar- General ; and on 14 January, 1848, was 
appointed Registrar of the Diocese of Cork and Ross, which 
latter post he still holds. He married Julia, daughter of John 
Green, Esq., and has issue one son, Henry-Egerton. 4. John 
Torrens Kyle, b.d., R.V. Clondrohid, Cloyne, q. v. 5. Hallam 
D'Arcy Kyle. He died at Peshawur, in India, in command of 
the 27 th Regiment (Inniskillings) from exhaustion and over- 
fatigue during the Mutiny. He had previously served with 
distinction in the 45th Regiment during the war in South 
Africa. 6. Alicia Dorothea, wife of Rev. Thomas Duke Moore, 
P. Kilnaglory, Cork, q. v. 7. Annette, wife of W. Westwood 
Chafy, Esq., only son of Doctor Chafy, Master of Sidney Sus- 
sex College, Cambridge. She left issue one son and two 
daughters. 8. Elisabeth, wife of Colonel George Wynell 
Mayow, of Bray, Morval, East Looe, Cornwall. She died S.P.

1848. James Wilson, d.d., was appointed Bishop by letters patent 
of 17 July, and was consecrated on 30 July, 1848, at St. 
Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, by the Abp. of Dublin, assisted 
by the Bishops of Meath and Ossory. He was enthroned at 
Cork on 2 August, and at Cloyne on 3 August, 1848. [Cotton.] 

James Wilson, son of James Wilson, merchant, was born in 
1780, at Newry, county Down, and was educated at that place. 
He entered T.CD. as a Sizar on 5 June, 1798, and obtained 
Scholarship in 1800. He took the degree of a.m. in 1809, for 


a long time was a "Resident Master" in T.C.D., and graduated 
d.d. in 1830. 

He was ordained a Deacon in Dublin by the Bp. of Down and 
Connor on tbe 14 Dec., 1810, and was nominated as Curate 
Assistant of St. Audoen's parish, Dublin, on the 8 July, 1817, 
to which he was licensed on 9th July. He was from 10 Feb., 
1817, to Oct. 8, 1833, the paid Secretary of the Association 
for Promoting Christian Knowledge ; and from 1830 to 1848 
was Chancellor of Leighlin, and R. Killinane, Ferns. When 
the Irish Ecclesiastical Commission was formed in 1833, he 
was appointed Secretary on the 25 September in that year, 
at a salary of £600 per annum, and he held that post until 
the 16 January, 1838, when he resigned. He was also from 
1835 to 1848, Precentor of St. Patrick's, Dublin. 

In 1840 Wilson was a Candidate for the Deanery of St. 
Patrick's; but in 1842, Robert Daly, afterwards Bishop of 
Cashel, was declared Dean by the Court of Delegates appointed 
to try the election. In 1848 he was appointed Bishop of 
Cork, under the viceroyalty of Lobd Clarendon. 

Bishop Wilson was one of Archbishop Whately's examining 
Chaplains, and was in favour of the National System of Edu- 
cation in Ireland. His opinions, however, on that subject did 
not influence him in the distribution of his patronage. His 
amiability and kindness of disposition gained him many friends. 

He died at Cork on 5 January, 1857, aged 78, unmarried, 
and was buried in Cork Cathedral. A window of stained glass, 
which cost over £200, was placed to his memory in the parish 
church of St Nicholas, Cork. It was presented by the Rev. 
Louis Perrin (R. Garrycloyne, Cloyne, q. v.) to whom the Bishop 
bequeathed (by his will, dated 19 July, 1855, and proved 14 
Feb., 1857) all his property, excepting a few legacies of small 
amount, and a year's subscription to the charities which he 
usually supported. The window, which is at the eastern end 
of St. Nicholas* Church, consists of three compartments. In 
the centre one is Isaiah, with a scroll containing the words, 
" Ecce virgo concipiet et pariet filium ;" at one side of him is St 
John Baptist pointing to the Lamb ; at the other St. John the 
Divine bearing a chalice. Underneath the figures is the fol- 
lowing inscription : — 

" In Memory of the 

Right Rev. James Wilson, 

Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, 

Consecrated July 30, 1848. 

Died January 5, 1857, 
In the 77 year of his age." 

1857. William Fitzgerald, d.d., was appointed to these Sees by 
letters patent of 7 Feb., and was consecrated on 8 March, 


1857, at St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, by the Abp. of Dub- 
lin, assisted by the Bishops of Down and of Limerick. The 
sermon at his consecration was preached by the Archbishop 
(Whateley). Be was enthroned on 14th March. 

W. Fitzgerald (a younger brother of Fbancis Alexander 
Fitzgerald, third Baron of the Exchequer) was born at Lifford, 
Limerick, on 3 Dec., 1814. He was a son of Maurice Fitz- 
gerald, m.d., of Lifford, who was many years Physician to the 
British Government, and to the Nabob, at Madras, by his 
second wife, Mary, younger daughter of Edward William Bur- 
ton, Esq., of Clifden, county Clare. 

W. Fitzgerald was educated at private schools, and at Midle- 
ton, co. Cork, and afterwards at T.C.D., where he obtained a 
Scholarship in 1833, the Primate's Hebrew Prize in 1834, and 
the Downes' premium for Composition in 1835 and 1837. 
He took the degree of a,b. in 1837, and afterwards those of

From 1847 to 1852 he was Professor of Moral Philosophy,

He was ordained Deacon at Elphin, by Bishop Leslie, on 
letters dimissory from Kildare, on 25 April, 1838, and Priest 
at Dublin, on 23 August, 1847, by Archbishop Whately, to

He was successively Curate of Lackagh, in the diocese of 
Kildare, and of Clontarf, Dublin ; and on 16 Feb., 1848, was 
collated to the Vicarage and Prebend of Donoghmore, in the 
diocese of Dublin. He was next promoted to the Vicarage of 
St. Anne's, Dublin, to which he was admitted on 18 July, 
1851. He vacated St. Anne's in 1855, and on the 13 May, in 
that year, was admitted P. C, Monkstown, Dublin, being in 
the same year appointed also Prebendary of Timothan, Dublin, 
and Archdeacon of Kildare. In 1857 he became Bishop of 
Cork, <fec, and in 1862 was translated to Killaloe, by letters 
patent, dated 3 February. 

Bishop Fitzgerald was married in 1840, to Anne, elder 
daughter of George Stoney, Esq., of Oakley Park, Queen's co., 
and by her (who died, aged 36, on 20 Oct., 1859, and was

1862. John Gregg, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, and 
Ross, by Queen's letter, dated 15 January, and by Privy Seal, 
dated 7th, and patent dated 8th, February, 1862, and was con-

Archbishop of Dublin, -assisted by the Bishops of Cashel and 
Killaloe. He was enthroned in Cork, for Cork and Ross, on 
19 Feb., and in Cloyne, for Cloyne, on 21 Feb., 1862. 

John Gregg is descended from Jonathan Gregg, who had 
two sons, Thomas, the younger, and Richard, of Cappa, co. 
Clare, Esq., who was the elder son. Richard died circa 1775, 
leaving issue by his wife, Eliza Rob i net t, a numerous family. 
His fourth son, Richard, born 20 Dec., 1747, died in 1808, 
having married Barbara, daughter of William Fitzgerald, Esq., 
and sister of the Right Honble. James Fitzgerald, whose wife 
was created Babonsss Fitzgerald and Vbsbt. Richard and 
Barbara Gregg had many children, of whom the fifth son was 
John Gregg, the present Bishop. 

He was born on 4 August, 1798, at Cappa, near Ennis, and 
was educated at T.C.D., where he obtained (besides several 


classical honors) a Scholarship in 1822, and Bishop Downes' 
premium*, and took the degree of a.b. in 1826, and those of 
a.m., B.D., and d.d. in 1860. 

He was ordained Deacon at Ferns, on tho First Sunday in 
Advent in 1826, and Priest at Kildare, in 1827. From 1826 
to 1828 he was Incumbent of St Paul's, Portarlington ; from 
1828 to 1835, Vicar of Kilsallaghan, Dublin ; from 1835 to 
1839, Chaplain of Bethesda, Dublin; from 1839 to 1862, In- 
cumbent of Trinity Church, Dublin ; and from 1857 to 1862, 
Archdeacon of Kildare. 

Bishop Gregg married Eliza, daughter of Robert Law, Esq., 
and had issue by her three sons — I. John-Robert, born 13 
Sept., 1831, ordained at Lichfield in 1854, and now Curate of 
St Lawrence, Reading, Dioc. Oxford. II. Robert- Samuel, born 
3 May, 1834, who graduated a.b., T.C D., in 1857, and a.m. in

the Bp. of Meath, on letters dimissory from Cork, on 30 May, 
1858; and in June, 1857, was appointed Curate of Rathcony,

Trib Episcopal See bears — Saphire, a Mitre between three Patri- 
archal Grosses, Pattee, Fi tehee, Topaz. 

It is not taxed in the King's Books ; bnt in a Manuscript in 
Marsh's Library it is mentioned to be valued an° 33d Eliz., at £10 10*. 
sterl., and in another Manuscript in the College Library, at £16 ster. 

The Chapter of Cloyne is constituted of a Dean, Chanter, Chan- 
cellor, Treasurer, Archdeacon, and of 14 Prebendaries (viz.) : — 
Donoghmore, Aghultie, Iniscarra, Brigoon, Kilmacdonogh, Cahirul- 
tan, Killenemer, Glanore, Bally hay, Coole, Eilmacleniu, Subulter, 
Coolinie, and Lackeen ; and the Cathedral is served by 4 Vicars 
Choral. The Diocese was formerly divided into 5 Rural Deaneries 
(viz.) : — Imokilly, Oleathan, Fermoy, Muscrydonegan, and Muscry- 
llline. But now there are but 4 (viz.) : — Castlelyons, Castletown, 
Bothon, and Muskerry. [Harris.] About the year 1519 the Bp. 
of Cloyne had 2 Archdeacons, viz. : Cloyne and Telalakath. 

Succession of Bishops. 

St. Colman (the son of Lenim, and domestic poet to Ardh 
Caohp, King of Munster [Vallencey's Collect., p. 440]) a man of 
learning and Piety, and a Disciple of St. Finbarr, Bishop of Cork, 
was the first Bishop and Founder of the Church of Cloyne. The 
building of this Church is mentioned in the Life of St Brendan, 
Abbat of Clonfert, in these words : — " This Colman, the Son of 
Lenin, was for learning and a good life Chief among the Saints. He 
founded the Church of Cloyne, which is at this Day a Cathedral, 
and famous in the Province of Munster." He flourished in the 
sixth Century, and at last slept peaceably in the Lord on the 4th of 
November, 604. [Ware.] One Coleman, the son of Lenin, is said 
[Acta Sanct., p. 533, chap. 22, 539 : Note 15] to have written the 
Life of St. Senan in Metre, and to have died in the year 600. I 
will not be positive whether he was the same Person with this 
Bishop ; but his Festival is celebrated at Cloyne on the 24th of No- 
vember. [Harris.] 

As to the Etymology of the Word, Clone ; it sign i fie th a Den or 
hiding place. This See in the antient Roman Provincial is called 
Cluain-vanian, and by the Irish Historians Cluain-vama. It is 
situated in the County of Cork, not far from the Vergivian Sea. I 
leave the exposition of the latter part of the Word, i.e., Varna or 
Vania, to those who are better skilled in the Matter, and shall only 
observe, that Vamh, in the Irish Language, signifieth a Cave or 


Den ; and Vamhan, Horrour ; so that CI nain vamb, or Varaban, may 
sign i fie a Den to lnrk in or a Gave of Horrour. [Ware and Harris. J 
Very little is now known of the Successors of Colman, before the 
arrival of the English. 

1094. O'Malvain, Bishop of Cloyne, died in 1094. [Ware.] 

1140. Nbhemiah O'Moriertaoh flourished in the year 1140. St. 
Bernard mentions him in the life of St. Malachy ; but in the 
printed Copy he is in a mistake called Episcopus Duenvanisn, 
instead of Cluanvanise. He died about the year 1149. The 
Anthor of Tnndall's Vision, calls him "a plain and Modest 
Man," excelling all others in Wisdom and Chastity. [Ware.] 

1159. O'Dubery [called in the Annals of Inisfall, O'Dubrein, Abbat 
of Cluain-vama] died in 1159. 

1167. O'Flanagan died in 1167. 

1171. One Matthew sat in this See at the time of the arrival of 
the English, in the Reign of King Henry II., and died about 
the year 1192. [Ware.] I am of opinion this Prelate's sur- 
name was CMongcigh* and that he is the same with Bishop 
O* Mongigh, who is mentioned in the Annals of Inisfall to have 
died in 1192 ; if so, he was Legate of Ireland : For the same 
Annals say, that upon his Death the Legatin Authority was 
committed to O'Enny, that is Matthew O'Heney, Archbishop 
of Cashell. But this deserves a further inquiry. [Harris.] 

1192 % The next Successor, Laurence O'Sullivan, died at Lismore, 
in 1204. [Ware.] Or in 1205, as the Annals of Inisfall say. 

1216. Daniel was Bishop in 1216. [Caulfield's Pipe Roll, page 47]. 
He died in 1222. [Ware.] The date of his consecration is 

1224. Florence, Archdeacon of Belleghac, was elected Bishop of 
Cloyne, and obtained the Royal Assent, at the Pope's request, 
on the 25th of August, 1224. But I find that on the third of 
February following, the Custody of the Temporalties of this 
See was committed to Marian, Archbishop of Cashell ; whether 
upon the death of Florence, or for what other Cause I know 
not. [Ware, and Rot. Clans. 8. Hen. III. Memb. 4.] Belleg- 
hac was probably Ballyhay. Vide Prynne's Records ii., p. 393, 
for <( Archidiaconus Beleghatensis." 

1226. Patrick, or William, succeeded. [Cotton.] A Cistertian 
Monk, called (if I am not mistaken) Patrick, who was Prior of 
the Abby of the blessed Virgin of Fermoy, or de Castro Dei, 
was Confirmed by the Royal Assent, in the year 1226. [Ware.] 
The Conge de*eslier to the Dean and Chapter of Cloyne, bore 
date that year; but I am doubtful, that Patrick here mentioned, 
was not elected by Virtue of the said Licence. For in the 
next Membrane it is said, that W., Prior of Fermoy, was elected 
Bishop of Cloyne and obtained the Royal Assent ; nnless it 


may be supposed, that W. might have been the initial Letter 
of the surname of this Patrick. [Harris, and Pat. Rot. 10 
Hen. III., Memb. 2 and 3.] 

1237. David Mag Kelly, a Dominican Friar, Dean of Cashell, " vir 
simplex et maturus," succeeded in 1237, and was translated to 
the Archbishoprick of Oashell in 1238. [Hibernia Dominicans*] 
Even while Dean of Cashel he gave himself wholly up to the 
Society of Dominicans at Cork, out of whose body he supplied 
a little convent which he founded at Cashel in 1243. He 
died on the 2nd March, 1252 or 1253. [Ware.] 

1240. Alan O'Sullivan, a Dominican Frier, was consecrated a.d. 
1 240 ; and eight years after was translated to Lismore. 
Christian, Bishop of Emly, maintained against this Prelate, in 
1245, an assize of Novel Disseisin for a tenement in Kyloomyr, 
which he claimed in right of his See of Emly, and obtained a 
verdict. But the Chief Justice refused to give judgment with- 
out the King's direction, because Bishop O'Sullivan threatened 
to excommunicate him if he did. The King, thereupon, issued 
a Writ, commanding the Chief Justice to give judgment, and 
to amerce the Bishop of Cloyne, and to imprison him for fur- 
ther prosecuting the suit in the spiritual courts, and for his 
contempt. Bishop O'Sullivan was, in 1248, translated to Lis- 
more, and he died in 1252. [Ware.] 

1249. Daniel succeeded. I do not know of what Religious House 
Friar Daniel was a Monk ; but as Luke Wading says [Annals 
V. 1. p. 686] he was of the Order of St Francis. He was 
consecrated Bishop of this See in 1249. [Ware.] Upon his 
Election the Dean and Chapter refused to present him to the 
King for his Approbation ; but by Apostolick Mandate directed 
to the Archbishop of Cashell, and to the Bishops of Killaloe and 
Lismore, proceeded to get him consecrated. The King was so 
offended at this conduct, that he refused to restore him to the 
Temporalities, until he was prevailed upon by the Instant 
supplications of some great and religious Men ; and then he 
sent a writ [Rot Claus. 32 Hen. 111. memb. 6. dorso] to the 
Lord Justice for that purpose, bearing date the 2d of July. 
But it was on condition, that the Bishop, Dean, and Chapter, 
should give security by Patent, not to make any Election for 
the time to come, without first obtaining Licence, and before 
Consecration presenting the person elected to the King for his 
Approbation. Bishop Daniel died in the beginning of the year 
1264, and was a Man very much celebrated by Historians for 
his Virtues, devotion, and Wisdom. On the second of June 
after his Death, the Dean and Chapter of Cloyne obtained a 
Licence from the King to elect a Successor. [Ware, and Annals 
lnisfall, ad. an. 1265.] 

1265. Reginald was advanced from the Archdeaconry to the Bishop- 
rick of Down in 1258, and from thence was translated to this 


See in 1265. . He died about the close of the year 1273. 
[Ware.] In 1273 he acted as Suffragan to the Bishop of Lin- 
coln, and consecrated the church of Stone, near Aylesbury, in 
Buckinghamshire. [Cole, quoted by Cotton.] Rennet not 
being aware that Irish Bishops were often in those days Suf- 
fragans to English Sees, was puzzled at the title ClonevsU, and 
reads it Glovemis, and supposes he must have been Abbot of 
Gloucester. [Ben net.] 

1274. Alan O'Lonergan, or as some call him O'Clungan, a Fran- 
ciscan Frier, succeeded in 1274, and was restored to the Tem- 
po ralties about Easter, 1274, as appears by Escheator Sam- 
ford's Accounts in the Chief Remembrancer's Office ; his Writ 
[Rot. Pat. 3. Edw. I. mem. 3] of Restitution bearing date 
the 28th of February before. He died in 1283; and on the 
18th, or rather 8th, of March, before the end of that year, King 
Edward the first granted a Licence to proceed to the Election 
of a Successor. [Ware, Harris, and Rot. Pat 12 Edw. L 
memb. 14.] 

1284. Frier Nicholas db Effingham, a Native of England, suc- 
ceeded in 1284, and was restored to the Temporalities on the 
2d of September, 1284. In 1289 he granted forty Days in- 
dulgences to whoever should bear Mass from any Canon of 
Christ Church, Dublin, or should say the Lord's Prayer, or an 
Ave-Mary for the Benefactors of the said Church. The Origi- 
nal Instrument of this Grant is among the Archives of Christ 
Church. He died in a very advanced age, a.d. 1320, having 
sat upwards of thirty-six years. [Ware and Harris.] His 
Episcopal seal is engraved in Ware's History of the Bishops. 
u The arms are different from those now borne by the See, viz. : 
A Bishop (probably St. Col man), mitred and habited, proper, 
in the act of blessing." [Bennet MSS.] 

This was the first of the Cloyne Bishops who was an English- 
man for certain ; but I suspect Bishop Reginald was also of 
that country, by reason of his English connection. [Bennet 

1320. Maurice O'Solehan, Archdeacon of Cloyne, and Canon of 
Emly, succeeded in 1320, and died in 1334, in the 13th year 
after his Consecration to this See. King Edward III. in con- 
sideration of the Poverty of the two Bishopricks of Cork and 
Cloyne, had a design to unite them ; and for that end wrote to 
Pope John the XXII. about the year 1327, who readily came into 
the King's Measures; and for that purpose issued his Apostolick 
Bull, dated the 2d of August, in the 11th year of his Pontificate, 
to take place in the Survivor of the then Bishops. There was 
room to carry this Union into execution upon the translation 
of Walter le Rede, from the See of Cork to the Archbishoprick 
of Cashell, in the year 1330. But nothing was done tLen; 
because the Original Bull for this Union happened to be lost. 


Id 1377 Richard Wye, Bishop of Cloyne, applied to Pope 
Gregory the Xlth, to remedy this Loss ; and the Pope sent 
him an exemplification of the Bull of Union of his Predecessor, 
Pope John ; which he confirmed, and gave to it the same force 
as the Original Bull had. But Girald Barry, who was at that 
time Bishop of Cork, lived untill a little before Bishop Wye's 
deprivation ; and nothing was further stirred in this intended 
Union, untill about the year 1430, when both Sees happened to 
he vacant ; and they were then consolidated, and Jordan pro- 
moted to them upon the death of Adam Pay, Bishop of Cloyne, 
who had laboured with all his might to bring this Union to 
effect in his own time, but without success ; although he had 
procured the Bull of Pope Martin for it. [Ware and Harris.] 

1335. John db Cumba, a Cistertian Monk of the Abby of Combe, 
in Warwickshire, succeeded by the Pope's Provision, and was 
restored to the Temporalities on the 16th of September, or, as 
some say, the 27th of December, 1335. [Ware.] 

133 — (?) Lewis succeeded. On 3 August, 1337, a conge de Elire 
issued to the Dean and Chapter to elect a new Bishop in the 
room of Lewis, the late Bishop. [Rot. Pat. Turr., Berm, 11° 
Edw. III., facie, No. 15.] 

13 — (?) About this time John Brid, for a time Abbat of the Cis- 
tertian Abby of Louth-Park [Parco-Luda], in Lincolnshire, in 
England, was Bishop of Cloyne. [Ware.] Bishop John Bryd 
appears in Caulfield's Pipe Roll, page 40. 

1351. John Whittock, alias Whitoock, Dean of Cloyne, succeeded 
by election, and was confirmed by the Pope's Bull. He was 
restored to the Temporalities on the 18th of September, 
1351, having first appeared before the King, and openly and 
expressly renounced all Words and Clauses in the said Bull 
prejudicial to the Crown, and submitted himself to the King's 
Mercy. He died on the 7th of February, 1361. This See was 
afterwards two years vacant. [Ware, King's Collections, page 
102, and Rot. Pat. 25 Edw. II.J 

John Whittock is called " Wytecod," in the Pipe Roll of 
Colman, p. 35 ; where it is also stated that his three imme- 
diate predecessors were " debiles et senectute confracti," and 
therefore unable to contend against a powerful chieftain who 
wrongfully seized part of their demesne lands. 

[1358. Dec. 11. Wad, Bishop of Cloyne, John de Wynchedon, and 
others, of the county Cork, were appointed conservators of the 
peace. See Tuckey's Cork Rem., p. 22]. 

1363. John de Swafham, a Carmelite Frier of the Abby of Lyn, in 
the County of Norfolk, and Doctor of Divinity of the Univer- 
sity of Cambridge, was consecrated Bishop of Cloyne in 1363, 
being advanced to it by a Papal Provision. On the 20th of 
September, 1373, he was sent to England by the Parliament in 
Commission with Stephen de Valle, Bishop of Meath, and 


others, to represent to the King the State of the Kingdom of 
Ireland. In consequence of this journey the Earl of March 
was ordered to repair thither, and Sir William Windsor was 
nominated Custos. He was translated from this See to that of 
Bangor, in Wales, by Pope Gregory the XI., on the second of 
July, 1376, as a recom pence for his great Labours against the 
WickUvisU. Nicholas Harpsfield, in his History of that Sect, 
is mistaken when he calls him Bishop of St David's. He 
assisted at the Synod of Stanford [Peck's Annals of Stanford, 
Lib. xi., p. 67], convened a.d. 1392, in which the Writings of 
John Wickliff were condemned. He died about the year 1398. 
[Le Neve Mistakes in making him Bishop of Ologher, instead 
of Cloyiie.1 He wrote — 1. Contra Wiclevistas ; 2. Condones. 

Bishop S waff bam is considered to be the prelate who com- 
piled the ancient vellum roll, commonly #alled " Pipa Col- 
umn ni," still preserved in the Diocesan Registry of Cloyne. 
This curious manuscript, which illustrates the ancient consti- 
tution, customs, rights, and privileges of the See, and is well 
deserving of publication, has recently been given to the world, 
under the care of R. Caul field, esq. 

1376. Richard Wye, who like his Predecessor, was an English 
Carmelite Frier, was advanced to this See by the Provision of 
Pope Gregory theXIth, and was restored to the Temporalities 
on the 9th of November, 1376. He was excommunicated for 
some misdemeanours in 1380, and fled into England, whence 
be returned in 1381. Vide Tuckey's Cork Rem., p. 28. In 
1394 he was deprived for speaking disrespectfully of the Pope. 
Yet, notwithstanding his deprivation, he took upon himself to 
act as Bishop ; and the year following, King Richard the lid., 
who was then at Waterford, ordered him to be apprehended, 
and committed to the custody of Peter Hacket, Archbishop of 
Cashell. [Ware and Rot., Claus. 18, Ric. II.] 

"In 1376 a convocation sat at Westminster, which was 
attended by the Irish as well as the English clergy. Writs 
were sent to the Bp. of Cloyne for his Diocese to elect their 
2 representatives. The Diocese chose Prior Thomas and John 
Tandy, who went to England accordingly.'* [Bennet MSS.] 

1394. Gerald Canton, an Augustin Hermit, and Vicar-General of 
that Order in Ireland, was promoted to the See of Cloyne by 
the Provision of Pope Boniface the IXth, and was restored to 
the Temporalities on the 9th of November, 1394. He was 
Bishop of this See on the 14th of May, 1407; but I do not 
find how long after. [Ware.] 

1421. Adam Pat, or Pyb (called by Pryn [Animad.,p. 313] Adam 
Pory, Bishop of Clon), succeeded. He laboured with all his 
Power to unite the See of Milo Fitz-John, Bishop of Cork, to 
his own ; which caused great Disputes between these Prelates 
in a Parliament assembled in Dublin, in April, 1421. But the 


Cognizance of the Cause was soon dismissed, as belonging 
properly to the Pope. This Prelate died in 1430. [Ware.] 

Under the following Bishops, excepting two, the See of 
Cloy ne was united to Cork by the Pope, and it is stated in 
Archbishop Swayne's Register at Armagh, that the poverty 
of the Sees was the ground of union, and that the two Chapters 
were to sit and vote together as one body ; —

1638. George Stnge, d.d., was consecrated Bishop of Cloyne, at 

vol. in. H 


Drogheda, on 11 Nov., 1638, by James Ussher, Archbishop of 
Armagh, licence from the Archbishop of Oashel having been 
previously obtained on 29 Oct. [Ware, and Cooper MS. 

The family of Synge, which gave five prelates to the Church 
in Ireland, was descended from one Millington, of Cheshire, 
whose fourth son [Harl. MS., 1241, 1631, a Canon in the Col- 
legiate church of St. Mary Magdalene, Bridgnorth, Salop, was 
distinguished for the excellence of his voice in the choir, and 
was generally known by the name of Sing, or Synge. At the 
Reformation, on the dissolution of the choir, this Canon Mil- 
lington adopted the surname of Sing ; married, and had issue 
three sons — Hugh Millington, or Syng ; George ; and William, 
which last died S. P. 

George Synge, or Millington, the second son, became an 
Alderman of Bridgnorth, of which place he was Bailiff in 1564. 
Alderman George Synge died in 1601, haviug had the following 
issue : — By his first wife, Dorothy, daughter of Hugh Milling- 
ton, he had two sons, William, and George, who both died S. P. ; 
and five daughters, viz : — 1. Anne, wife of Richard Wareham, 
of London; 2. Barbara, wife of Robert Scarborro we; 3. Margery, 
wife of William Morris ; 4. Elizabeth, wife, firstly, of James 
Starr, and secondly, of Thomas Turner ; 5. Joanna, wife of— 
Symonds, of Muckhall, Radnor. Alderman Synge married, 
secondly, Anne, dau. of Roger Catesby, of Catesoy, Salop, and 
by her had a son, Richard ; and two daughters, Margaret, wife 
of Richard Straiger ; and Frances, wife of Richard Lee, brother 
of Sib Robert Lee, Lord Mayor of London. 

Richard Synge, the only surviving son of Alderman George 
Synge, was an Alderman and Bailiff of Bridgnorth, in 1598. He 
entered his pedigree with the names of his children at the 
Herald's Visitation of 1623. [Harl. MSS., 1396, 283.1 He died 
in 1631. He had, by his wife, Alice, dau. of Roger Rowley, of 
Rowley, Shropshire, ten children — 1. George, Bishop of Cloyne; 
2. Joseph, in holy orders, Rector of Manfieldstown, and Vicar of 
Dundalk ; he married Anne, dau. and heiress of Sib Thomas 
Ashe, knt, of St. John's Abbey, co. Meath, and by her had issue 
a son, George Synge, of Dundalk ; 3. Benjamin ; 4. Thomas ; 
5. Richard ; 6. John ; 7. Samuel ; 8. Edward, Bishop of Cork ; 
9. Joshua; 10. Anne. 

George Synge (the eldest son of Alderman Richard Synge, 
as above stated), was born in 1 594, at Bridgnorth, and was 
educated as a Commoner in Balliol College, Oxford, where he 
diligently applied himself to his studies for eight years, and in 
1616 commenced Master of Arts. He subsequently became 
d.d. of that University. 

In 1621, or previously, he came to Ireland, and at that time 
was made Vicar-General of Armagh, and Rector of Donogh- 
more in that diocese by Primate Hampton. He held also, from 


1621 to 1638, the R. Killary, Meath. In 1628 he exchanged 
Donoghmore for the R. V. Loughgilly, Armagh, to which he 
was admitted in September, 1628. He was also R. Mansfields- 
town, Armagh, which he resigned in 1635. In 1634 he was 
also Treasurer of Dromore, which he vacated in 1635, and 
became Dean of Dromore with R. Dromballyrainey and Sea- 
patrick, which preferments he vacated in 1638, on becoming 
Bishop of Oloyne. 

While he was Dean of Dromore, one Malone, an Irish Jesuit 
of the College of Lou vain, published a bold paper, entitled, " A 
Challenge," Ac. This Tract was learnedly aud judiciously 
answered by Doctor Ussher, then Bishop of Meath. 

" About three years after, when the College of Louvain had 
long studied how to answer it, the said Malone did at last 
publish a tedious Reply, stu fifed with scurrilous and virulent 
expressions against the learned Answerer, his Relations, and 
Profession, and full of quotations, either falsely cited out of the 
Fathers, or else out of Divers supposititious Authors, as also 
forged Miracles ; made use of merely to blind the Eyes of ordi- 
nary Readers. Some learned Divines diss waded Ussher from 
rejoining thereunto, in Regard of the indignity of the Railer, 
and Virulence of the work ; as also because it would hinder him 
in other Studies more necessary for the Church, and offered 
their Endeavours to examine the same : which, being accepted 
of by him, Doctor Synge prepared the Way by publishing an 
accurate Piece, written with great Spirit and Life, as well as 
Learning and Judgment, under this title — 'A Rejoinder to the 
Reply published by the Jesuits under the Name of William 
Malone, Part i., wherein the general Answer to the Challenge 
is cleared from all the Jesuit's Cavills.' Dub., 1632. 4to. 
In this Tract the learned Doctor did so fully and clearly lay 
open the Falsehood and Disingenuity of the Jesuit's Argu- 
ments and Quotations from the antient Records and Fathers of 
the Church, which had been cited by that Author, that he left 
him very little Reason to boast of a Victory." 

Bishop Synge exerted himself successfully to improve the 
revenues of his See, and an account of his success is given in 
the Bennet MSS. [III., p 5-6.'] In his time the Wardenship 
of Toughal was united to the See of Cloyne. 

In 1641, when the Rebellion broke out, he was plundered 
of all his goods, cattle, Ac, at Cloyne, worth £1,250, on 24 
Oct., and also in other parts of Ireland he lost property to the 
amount of £3,932. He himself fled to Dublin for protection; 
but his wife and family were not so fortunate, for in 1641 " five 
of his children, with their mother and grandmother, going by 
sea to England to save their lives, were all drowned together 
in the passage." [MSS. T.C.D. F. 2. 17.] 

Bishop Synge, however, despite his private losses, exerted 
vol. m. h 2 


himself in the King's behalf with snch spirit as to incur the 
odium of the Cromwelliane, who, when the parliament triumphed 
against the rebels in Minister, sequestered both the bishopric 
and the personal estate of Synge. The Bishop remained in 
Dublin to the last moment, assisting Lord Ormond and the 
Government. In 1644 he and Dean Boyle were employed 
by the Lord Lieutenant to dissuade Lord Inchiquin from the 
treaty he was then negotiating with the Parliament. Towards 
the end of that year he became a Commissioner for passing 
the Lord Lieutenant's accounts; and in February, 1644, was 
called by Charles IL into the Privy Council of Ireland. On 
5 May, 1645, he was present in his robes in the Irish House of 
Lords; and in 1646, on the death of Maxwell, was nominated 
to the Archbishopric of Tuam, but never had possession of that 
See. In 1648 he went with a confidential despatch to Lord 
lnchioum (now returned to the King's party), which he de- 
livered to his Lordship, at Cork, Soon after this he returned 
to his own country. 

In 1652, upon the petition of his second wife, Elisabeth, to 
the government, an order (in which he is styled late Bishop of 
Cloyne), was dated at Cork, 3rd June, directing the Treasurer 
of the public Revenue at Cork to pay, out of the first profits 
of the Bishopric which he should receive, or out of the tem- 
poral estate of her husband, then in the disposal of the Com- 
monwealth, the sum of £25, for the relief of her and her child- 
ren, and towards the defraying the charge of their transporta- 
tion to England, where her husband was resident. [MS. addi- 
tions to Ware.] 

Bishop Synge died soon after at Bridgnorth, where he was 
buried, in the church of St Mary Magdalene, on 31 August, 
1652. In the epitaph on his tomb he is thus described : — 
" Vir gravis admodum et doctus, prosertim in polemica Tbeo- 
logia, et juris utri usque scientia. Procerioris prseterea sta- 
tures, forms decora, et generosce conversation is." Synge was 
a great friend of Archbishop Ussher ; he was hospitable to his 
friends, and charitable to the poor. 

He was twice married. His first wife, whom he married in 
1622, was Anne, daughter of Francis Edgeworth, Esq., of 
Dublin, Clerk of the Hanaper. By her, who, with five of her 
younger children, and her mother, was drowned in 1641, he 
had issue an eldest son, Francis, Archdeacon of Ross, q. v. ; and 
a daughter, Margaret, wife of Primate Michael Boyle, who was, 
in 1 640, Dean of Cloyne, q. v. Bishop Synge married secondly 
(circa 1645) Elizabeth Stephens, and by her had inter alios 
two sons — Richard, Archdeacon of Cork, q. v. ; and George, P. 
Kilbrogan, Cork, q v. 

After the death of Synge, in 1652, the See continued vacant 
until the restoration of King Charles II. 


1660. Michael Boyle was, in 1660, made Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, 
and Ross. See under the Bishops of Cork for his history. 

1663. Edwabd Synoe was, in 1663, made Bishop of Cork, Clojne, 
and Ross. See under Bishops of Cork for his history. He 
died in 1678. 

The See of Cloyne was highly obliged to Bishop Edward 
Synge's activity and abilities for preserving its property. 

This Prelate, for securing the landed estate, Bishop rooley, 
for uniting the valuable living of Aghada to the mitre, and 
Bishop Crowe, for arranging, by exchange or purchase, the 
land round the House, may be reckoned the greatest Benefactors 
to the Bishoprick since the restoration. [Ben net MSS.] 

In 1678, on Bishop Synge's death, the Chapter of Cloyne 
resolved that a " Throne should be raised for the next Bishop 
and his Lady, in a convenient place of the choir." [Bennet 

1679. Patrick Sheridan, dd., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne 
by letters patent, dated 19 April, 1679, to which a clause was 
added, permitting him to hold the Archdeaconry of Dromore, 
the Deanery of Connor, and the Rectory of Islandmagee, in 
commendam, in consideration of his missing our former kind 
intentions, and by reason of the smallness of the revenues of 
the Bishopric. [Pat. Rot. and Todd's MSS.] 

Patrick Sheridan, born near Enniskillen, circa 1638, was a 
son of the Reverend Denis Sheridan, a Popish priest, of the 
parish of Kildrumferton, Kilmore diocese, who was converted 
by Bishop Bedel, and who, in 1641, gave shelter to that good 
Bishop. Denis Sheridan was, in 1645, appointed R. Dronge 
and Lara, in Kilmore diocese, and had four sons — 1. William, 
born in 1635, at Togher, afterwards Bishop of Kilmore, and 
the only Irish bishop who was deprived for not taking the 
oath of allegiance to King William. 2. Patrick, Bishop of 
Cloyne. 3. Thomas, born in 1641, who received knighthood, 
and was Secretary to King James II. 4. James, born near 
Trim, in 1649, who entered T.C.D. in 1665. 

Patrick, when 14 years of age, entered T.C.D., on 15 May, 
1652, graduated there Master of Arts, to which degree he was 
also incorporated at Oxford, and graduated d.d. in Dublin 
University in 1681. 

Sheridan was appointed, in 1660, a Fellow, T.C.D., and on 
31 May, 1662, became R. Clonfeacle, Armagh, receiving also, 
on 20th November same year, the office of Senior Lecturer. 
On 12 August, 1664, he became Archdeacon of Dromore, but 
resigned in a few months ; and on 20 November, 1665, became, 
by Mandamus of the King, a Senior Fellow of T.C.D. In 1666 
he was Vice-Provost. From 1667 to 1679 he was Dean of 
Connor, and from 1667 to 1682 was Archdeacon of Dromore. 
In 1668 he resigned his Fellowship, and became R. Conwall, 


Raphoe. In 1679, when be was made Bishop of Cloyne, he 
vacated the Deanery of Connor. 

He died at Dublin, on 22 Nov., 1682, and was buried in 
the College Chapel. [Ware.] 
1682. Edward Jones, d.d., succeeded. 

Edward Jones was a native of Wales. By the family pedi- 
gree, compiled, in 1591, by Lewis Dwnn, deputy Herald under 
Clarencieux, his house derived their origin from Brochwell ap 
Cyngen, called Ysgithrog, King of Powys, who commanded the 
Britons at the battle of Bangor Yscoed, fought a.d. 603.* 
Mr. Jones was the eldest son (by his wife, Sarah, dau. of John 
Pvttes, Esq., of Warrington, Lancashire) of Richard ap John, 
of Llwyn Kirid, in the ohapelry of Forden, and co. of Mont- 
gomery. He was born at his father's seat, in 1641 [Le Neve's 
Fasti, page 22, and ex MSS. Trin. Coll. Cambridge], and was 
bapt 24 July of that year [Forden Register.] He was edu- 
cated on the foundation at Westminster, Dr. Busby being Head 
Master [Westminster School Registry, and Letter to S. Hay- 
man of Rev. H. G. Liddell, 23 June, 1852] ; admitted, 22 
May, 1661, a pensioner of Trinity College, Cambridge, under 
Mr. Hill as his Tutor [Matriculation Register] ; and was shortly 
afterwards elected to a Scholarship. He proceeded to the 
degree of b.a. in 1664, and was chosen Minor Fellow in 1667, 
at the same time with his friend, Isaac Newton. It does not 
appear that he became Major Fellow. He became m.a. in 
1668, and afterwards b.d. and d.d. 

Having entered into holy orders, Mr. Jones came to Ireland, 
in 1670, as Domestic Chaplain to the Duke of Ormonde, the 
Lord Lieutenant, and was by him appointed Master of the 
Grammar School, or College of Kilkenny, which was then the 
" Eton" of Ireland. He seems to have held this appointment 
for ten years ; and, while discharging this duty, he became 
preceptor of Jonathan Swift (afterwards Dean of St. Patrick's), 
who was educated at Kilkenny between the years 1673 and 
1681. Mr. Jones was collated to the prebend of Aghoure or 
Freshford, in the diocese of Ossory, in May, 1677 ; and other 
advancement, due to his rare abilities, soon followed. From 
Aghoure he was promoted to the Deanery of L ism ore, by let- 
ters patent, dated 16 November, 1678 [Ware's Worfo, vol. i., 
p. 579] ; and thence, in 1682/3, to the Bishopric of Cloyne, by 
letters patent, dated 26 Feb. of that year. He was conse- 
crated on the 16th of March following, in the Cathedral of 

An authenticated copy of this pedigree, the official compilation of Clarencieux's 
deputy, is in the possession of the Rev. Samuel Hayman, of South Abbey, YoaghaL 
It has two addenda, or continuations — first, from the year 1591 to Bishop Jones' 
time ; and secondly, from his era to the present day. Mr. Hayman, who now 
r ep re s e nts the line of the Bishop of Cloyne's brother, the Rev. Matthew Jones, has 
thus a descent traced, without omission of a generation, for the lengthened period 
of 1,260 years. 


Cashel, by Thomas [Price], Abp. of Cashel, assisted by the 
Bishops of Waterford, Limerick, and Killaloe. 

How well fitted he was for this high dignity, and with what 
efficiency he discharged its sacred obligations, we may learn 
from the State Letters of Henry, Earl of Clarendon, Viceroy of 
Ireland, tempore Jacobi II.* This distinguished nobleman 
writes from Dublin Oastle, 14 Feb., 1685/6, to the Abp. 
of Canterbury, relative to Irish Church dignities at the time 
vacant The See of Cashel he proposes to give to Dr. Otway, 
Bishop of Ossory; and Ossory, so vacated, he desires to fill by 
promoting Dr. Jones, Bishop of Cloyne. Of the latter prelate 
he thus speaks : — 

" Dr. Jones, the present Bishop of <31oyne, whom I propose 
to be translated to Ossory, is a very worthy man, and has done 
great good in the diocese he now is in, even to his own detri- 
ment, to promote the interests of the Church ; he was domes- 
tick Chaplain to the Duke of Ormond, who will give your 
Grace an account of him. These two prelates [Otway and 
Jones] I know." 

Again, writing to Lord Sunderland, 16 Feb., 1685/6, he 
further speaks : — 

" I can likewise say of the Bishop of Cloyne, whom I hum- 
bly propose to be removed to Ossory and Kilkenny, that he is 
a very worthy man, and does good where he lives, and will 
always make his calling his business/' [" King James II., how- 
ever, refused the whole list, and gave the income of all vacant 
sees to the Titular Bishops, whom he regarded as the rightful 
possessors." Bennet MSS.] 

The Bishop, about this time, married Elizabeth, second 
daughter (by his wife, Anne, daughter of Christopher Barker, 
Esq.) of Sir Richard Kennedy, Baronet, of Mount Kennedy, 
county Wicklow, Second Baron of the Exchequer, Ireland, and 
had issue : — 

I. Richard, of Llwyn Ririd, who died S. P. circa 1698. 

II. Thomas, d.d., Canon of St. Asaph, Rector of Cwm, Flint- 
shire, and Vicar of Goodrich, Herefordshire. He married 
Elizabeth, third dau. of Thomas, Lord ffolliott, widow of 
Samuel Powell, Esq., of Stannage Park, co. Radnor. He died 
S. P. in 1722. 

III. Benjamin, m. Anne, sister and heir of Henry Haynes, 
Esq., of Netley, Salop, and had issue — 1. Richard; 2. Benja- 
min ; 3. Anne, m. 1st, to Smith ; 2ndly, to Dagley. 

IV. Robert, of College-street, Westminster* He died in 
Dublin, 20 March, 1739/40.

of Richard Neville, Esq., of Furness, county Kildare, and had 
issue. He died in Oxfordshire, in 1734.

In 1689, under the arbitrary government of Tyrconnell, 
King James' Lord Lieutenant, the Bishop of Cloyne fled to 
England, with his wife and six children. He was then 
attainted of High Treason. A MS., preserved in the Library 
of Trinity College, Dublin, is entitled : — 

" A List of such protest of Irel. as are lately fled out of ye 
Eingd. for safety of yr lives, and ye yearly value of yr estates, 
now either sequestra by ye papists in Irl. or so kept from ye 
sd. protests, that they neithr. doe nor can receive profit out of 
yr estates." And by this document it appears that the Bishop 
of Cloyne left behind him in Ireland, or lost, a real estate of 
£500 per annum. He does not seem to have returned to his 
Irish bishopric. In 1692, 13 December (on the advancement 
of Dr. William Lloyd to Lichfield) he was translated from 
Cloyne to St. Asaph.* The reader who desires to trace his 
career further will find his Welsh episcopate noticed in Browne 
Willis's " Survey of Asaph" [vol. i., p. 126, Wrexham, 1801] ; 
but here our notice of him must cease. He died intestate, atate 
62, 10 May, 1703, at his Dwelling House in College Court, 
near Westminster Abbey; and was buried on the 13th of the 
same month, in a vault under the Comnl union Table, in the 
parish church of St. Margaret's, Westminster, without any 
inscription or monument. 
1693. William Palliber, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne, 
with the Rectory of Templeshamboe, Ferns, in commendam, by 
letters patent of Feb. 14, 1692/3, and was consecrated in 
the Chapel of T.C.D., on 5 March, by the Archbishop of Dub- 
lin, assisted by the Bishops of Limerick and Elphin. He was 
enthroned at Cloyne, on 18 March, by Rowland Davies, the 
Vicar-General, dec., dec. [Cotton, and D.R.] 

William Palliser was born, circa 1641, at Kirkby-Wiske, in 
the North Riding of Yorkshire, and in Gillingwtst, Wapentake. 
•He was educated at Northallerton, in Yorkshire, and after- 
wards at the University of Dublin, where he took his degree 
of Doctor of Divinity. 

In 1668 he became a Fellow of T.C.D., and received Deacon's 
orders from the Bishop of Ferns, at Wexford, in November, 
1669, and Priest's orders on 28 January following, in St. 
Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. He was elected Medicus on 19

English one ; and there are bat four other instances on record. [Irish Ecclesias- 
tical Journal, vol. vii., p. 17.] 


Oct., 1670, and was afterwards appointed Professor of Divinity. 
He resigned his Fellowship, and became R. Clonfeacle, Armagh, 
on Oct. 27, 1681 ; but in 4 days afterwards was re-admitted 
by dispensation, and resigned Clonfeacle. From March, 1 692/3, 
to June, 1694, he was Bishop of Gloyne, and by letters patent 
of 16 June in the latter year, was made Archbishop of Cash el 
He died in Dublin on 1 January, 1726/7, and was buried at 
St. Andrew's, in that city. 

Dr. Palliser was a munificent benefactor to Trinity College. 
In 1682 be gave £10 to be laid out in buildings ; in 1697, 
£200 for the same purpose ; and in 1717, £1,000 to be laid out 
in new buildings. Besides this, he bequeathed his library, 
consisting of over 4,000 volumes, and £200 to purchase an 
annual fund for buying books. He desired that the said books 
should be always called Bibliotheca Palliseriana, and be kept 
next to Ussher's Library, otherwise the bequest was to be 

Archbishop Palliser directed Mrs. Palliser to give communion 
plate to Cashel Cathedral, viz., a flagon, two cups, and two 
patens, in the year 1715. This plate is still in use. He wrote 
a Latin oration, spoken at the funeral of Primate Margetson, 
on 30 August, 1678. And printed (4to.) in 1679. He wrote 
also an account of the state of the diocese of Cloyne in 1693-4, 
which remained in manuscript in the Armagh Registry until 
it was printed in 1863, in the first volume of this work. The 
following letter to the Bishop of Meath shows that the clergy 
apprehended some mischief to themselves from inquiry into 
the state of their parishes, revenues, &c. : — 

" Cloyne, Dec. 12, '93. 

" My Lord, — 

" I return my most humble thanks for the favour of 
yr Ldship's, Nov. 25. I did transcribe and comunicate to the 
Clergy here that part of yr Ldshps Letter concerning the return 
of the yearly value of their Livings, but 1 stil find diverse of 
them unwilling to do what the Government requires, which 
retards my transmiss of the account of this diocese to the Lds 
Justices ; but, however, notwithstanding this present unwil- 
lingness of the Clergy, 1 hope very soon to send the Govern- 
ment a very particular representation of the Diocese. For my 
part I believ the aprehension of the Clergy in this affair to 
be absolutely chimerical, and that they are affraid where no 
fear is. 

" This Diocese has been divided, time out of mind, into four 
rural Deanries, and these are the names : Decanatus Corco- 
vaghan, Castletown, Bothon, Muskery. Under each of these 
Deanries are divers Livings, as also under the Deanry of Cloyn ; 
if yr Ldshp desires their Denominations, they shal be spedily 


sent you, and I heartily wish and hope that my next Letter 
may salute yr Ldshp under a higher title, for I am, 

" Mj Lord, 
" Tr most faithful obliged Servant, 

" (Endorsed) " W. Cloy*. 

" for the Right Reverend father in God, 

" Antony, Ld Bishop of Meath, 
" Dublin." 

Archbishop Palliser bequeathed a considerable fortune to his 
only son, William Palliser, Esq., who married Jane, eldest 
daughter and co-heiress of Colonel Mathew Pennefather, by 
Catherin, dau. of Sib Randle Bkbesfobd, Baronet 
1694. Tobias Pqllein, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne, with 
the R. Louth and Bewley, Armagh, in commendam, by letters 
patent of 13 Nov. 1694, being recommended by Dr. Tenison, 
then Bishop of Lincoln. Vide MSS. Lambeth. He was con- 
secrated by the Archbishop of Dublin, by virtue of a commis- 
sion from the Archbishop of Cashel. [Beg. Dub.] 

Tobias Pullein, Pullen, or Pulleyne (grandson of Samuel 
Pullen, Archbishop of Tuam, according to Cotton), was son of 
Joshua Pullein, and was born at Midalehara, in Yorkshire, in 
1648, and entered T.C.D. on 11 March, 1663, being then 16 
years of age. He was ordained in or before the year 1665. 
In January, 1665/6, he became a Vicar Choral of Tuam, being 
then in holy orders, and held that preferment until 1671. He 
became a Scholar T.C.D., in 1668, being then a Bachelor of 
Arts, and with a proviso " modo non trahatur in exemplum." 
He held a Fellowship in Trinity College from 1671 to 1676/7, 
when he resigned on Tullyagnish, Raphoe. From 1677 to 
1682 he was Treasurer of Armagh ; and from 1682 to 1694 was 
Dean of Ferns, R. Louth, R. Bewley, and V. St. Peter's, 
Drogheda. In 1 689 he was attainted by King James II. From 
1694 to 1695 he was Bishop of Cloyne, and he was translated 
to Dromore by patent of 7 May, 1695. 

He died in 1712/3, and was buried on the 18 April, 1712/3, 
at St. Peter's, Drogheda, where the following inscription was 
placed to his memory : — 

Tobias Pullein, d.d., 
Lies buried in this churchyard, under ye east window in ye 

South side. 
He was sometime Senior Fellow of T.C.D., Vicar of this Parish, 

Dean of Ferns, afterwards Bishop of Cloyne, and last of Dromore. 
He was an able and faithful minister of Christ, and was honored 
and beloved in every station. He died January the 22nd, 

a.d. 1712. 

Aged 64 years. 


He left behind him the following pieces : — 1. " An Answer 
to the Case of the Protestant Dissenters of Ireland." Folio. 
Dublin, 1695. 2. u A Sermon before the Lord Deputy and 
Parliament, on November 5." 4to. Dublin, 1695. He is 
also believed to have printed (anonymously, and probably 
not for general circulation) "A Viudication of Sir Robert 
King's designs and actions in relation to the late and present 
Lord Kingston ; being an answer to a scandalous libel lately 
sent abroad under the title of ' Materials for a bill of discovery 
against Sir Robert King and others,' n printed in 1699, with- 
out name of place or printer. A note in a copy of this book, 
now in Trinity College Library, Dublin, in the handwriting of 
its late owner, Lord Molesworth, asserts that Bishop Pullein 
was the author. [Dr. Todd.] 

The Tract, which Bishop Pullein answered in 1695, was 
entitled, " The Case of the Protestant Dissenters of Ireland, in 
reference to a Bill of Indulgence, represented and argued" 
(fol. pp. 3, without a title-page). It was written by the Rev. 
Mr. Boyse, a Presbyterian, early in the year 1695, and created 
a great sensation. Dr. Reid states that it is now exceedingly 
rare, the only known copy of it being one in the Library of 
Trinity College, Dublin. Mr. Boyse having replied to the 
Bishop, the latter rejoined in a second pamphlet (also anony- 
mous), entitled " A Defence of the Answer to a Paper, en- 
titled ' The Case of the Dissenting Protestants of Ireland in 
reference to a Bill of Indulgence, from the exceptions lately 
made against it.'" Fol. Dublin, 1697.— [See Reid's "His- 
tory of the Presbyterian Church." Vol. iii., pp. 47, 49, 56.] 

Tobias Pullein married on the 16 May, 1678, Elizabeth 
Leigh, and by her (who was buried at St. Peter's, Drogheda, 
on 4 Oct., 1691), had issue the following children, whose bap- 
tisms were entered in the Register of St. Peter's, viz. : — 1. 
Thomas, baptized 21 Feb., 1678/9. 2. Samuel, baptized 25 
June, 1682. 3. Isabella, baptized 12 June, 1683. 4. Elizabeth, 
baptized 22 August, 1684. [Extracts from Register of St. 
Peter's, Drogheda, by J. R. Garstin, Esq.] A fifth child of 
Bishop Pullein was Joshua, born circa 1687 in Dublin, who 
entered T.C.D. on 11 June, 1701, aged 14. 

Tobias Pullein was mentioned as a cousin in the will of 
William Graves, Esq., of Barnallon, Co. Meath, who died in 
1695. St. George Ashe, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne by 
letters of Privy Seal, dated 17 May, and by patent of 15 
July. He was consecrated on 18 July, 1695, at Christ Church, 
Dublin, by the Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops 
of Meath, Kildare, and Waterford. 

St George Ashe, a younger son of Thomas Ashe, Armiger, 
of St. John s, co. Meath, who died in 1671, by his wife, Mary, 


dau. of Capt. Richard Si. George, was born at Castle Strange, 
co. Roscommon, on 3 March, 1657, and was educated under 
Mr. Norris. When fourteen years old he entered T.O.D. as a 
Pensioner on 14 Nov., 1671, obtained a Scholarship in 1674, 
and was elected Fellow in 1679. He became Professor of 
Mathematics in 1685 ; in 1686 was coopted to a Senior Fellow- 
ship ; and in 1692 vacated his Professorship, and became Pro- 
vost on 22nd Sept From 1695 to 1697 he was Bishop of 
Cloyne ; from 1697 to 1716, Bishop of Clogher ; and from 1716 
to his death on 27 Feb., 1717/8, was Bishop of Deny. 

During the government of King James II., Ashe was obliged 
to fly his country, and engaged himself in the service of the 
Lord Paget, Ambassador for King William III. at the Court 
of Vienna, to whom he was both Chaplain and Secretary, in 
which station he continued until the settlement of Ireland gave 
him liberty to return to his native country with safety. 

In 1695 he was made a Privy Councillor, and in 1702 was 
made Vice Chancellor of the University of Dublin. He was 
a member of the Royal Society, while he was a Fellow of 
T.O.D., and was the author of the following works : — 

1. A Sermon preached on Matth. xxvi. 13, in Trinity College 
Chapel, before the University of Dublin, on January 9, 1693- 
4, being the first secular day since its foundation by Queen 
Elizabeth ; by St. George Ashe, d.d., Provost of Trinity College, 
Dublin. Published by the Lords Justices' command. Dublin, 
by Joseph Ray, 1694. [T.C.D.] 

2. A Sermon preached on the 23rd of October, 1712, to the 
Protestants of Ireland, then in London, at St. Clement's-Dane,

3. Two Sermons preached at Tun bridge. 4 to. 1714. 

4. A Sermon preached before the Society for the Propaga-

5. A Sermon preached at Christ Church, Dublin, on the 30th 
of January, 1715, before the Lords Justices, on Psalm v., v. 6. 
Dublin, 1715. 4to. London, 1715. 8vo. 

6. A Sermon before the Society for Reformation of Man- 
ners. 4to. London, 1717. 

There are several of his Observations among the Transac- 
tions of the Royal Society, viz. : —

Bishop Ashe was buried in Christ Church, Dublin. He left 
by his will (dated and proved in 1717), his Mathematical 
books and instruments to Trinity College, Dublin. He had 
by his wife, Jane, dau. of Sir George St. George, of Dunmore, 
co. Galway, two children, namely — a son, St. George, who died 
S. P. in 1721 ; and a dau., Elisabeth, who became the second 
wife of Sir Ralph Gorb, baronet. 
1697. John Poolby, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne by letters 
of Privy Seal, dated 1st July, and by patent of 24 Nov., 1697, 
and was consecrated on 2nd December, in St. Michan's Church, 
Dublin, by William, Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by the 
Bishops of Ferns and Clonfert. [Ware and Cotton.] 

John Pooley, descended of the ancient family of the Pooleys, 
of Suffolk, was born circa 1645, at Ipswich, being the son of 
Thomas Pooley, esq. (of Dublin and of Hartest, near Boxted, 
in Suffolk), by Douglas, third dau. and co-heiress of Edward 
Neville, son and heir of Francis Neville, the second son of Ed- 
ward Neville, Lord Abergavenny. John Pooley was educated 
at Dublin, with the great Dukeof Marlborough, under the tuition 
of Mr. William Hill, and became, in 1670, a Fellow of T.C.D , 
and in the year following, a Senior Fellow. At this time he held, 
according to Ware, the united parishes of Lei x lip, Lucan, 
Esker, Confoy, and Stacumnie. From Feb. 23rd, 1673/4 to 
1697 he was P. St. Michan s, Dublin ; from 1675 to 1702 he 
was Dean of Ossory; and from 1675 to 1686, R. Agharoe, 
Ossory. From 1702 to 1712 he was Bishop of Raphoe. 

He was Chaplain to Arthur, Earl of Essex, Lord Lieutenant of 
Ireland, and was also Chaplain to James, Duke of Ormond, by 
whose Letters, as Chancellor of Oxford, he was created Doctor 
of Divinity there on the 11th of July, 1682. By great labour, 
intreaties, and solicitation, he caused the Church of St. Michan's, 
in the city of Dublin, which was almost in Ruins, to be 
repaired, against a strong opposition made by the Sectaries, 
with whom, nevertheless, in the end he had extraordinary suc- 
cess in bringing many of them over to an unusual Compliance 
with the established Forms. 

While he was Bishop of Cloyne he was at vast trouble and 
in perpetual Law to recover some of his Episcopal Revenues, 
which had been severed from his See, and got into Secular 
Hands, but without success. His Successor, however, was 
more fortunate. In 1709 he was imprisoned in the Castle of 
Dublin by an Order of the House of Lords, for Protesting 
against an Adjournment of that House to a Holiday, which he 
could not be prevailed upon to withdraw. But his confinement 


was made easy by the Lord Lieutenant. He died on the 16th 
of October, 1712, in the 67th year of his age, and was buried 
in St Michan's Church, where a monument was erected to his 
memory with this inscription : —

He was a considerable Benefactor to the Public at his Death, 
for he bequeathed by his Will two Houses, built by him in 



Smithfield, to the Governors of the Blew-Coat-Hoepital and their 
Successors for ever, in trust, that they should, out of the Rents 
thereof, pay twenty Pounds per Ann. towards the support of 
the Blew-Coat-Boys, ten Pounds per Amu to the Poor of St. 
MicharCs, five Pounds per Ann. to the Poor of St. PauCs, and 
five Pounds per Ann. to the Poor of St Mary's; all these 
Legacies to rise or fall as the Rents of the Houses should ad- 
vance or sink. He bequeathed also sixty Pounds for a Font 
(having previously given a large silver chalice and cover) for 
St. MichcwCs Church, and towards bringing the West Gallery 
more Eastward, and removing the Pulpit and reading Desk ; 
one hundred and twenty Pounds towards raising the Steeple of 
St. Canic's Church in Kilkenny, and to mend, dash, and point 
the Round Tower ; to be paid out of a Bond due by Agmon- 
disham Ouffe ; and whatever should be wanting in Principal 
and Interest, to be supplied by his Executors. Two hundred 
Pounds out of the money due to him for repairing the Castle 
of Baphoe, he left to make a North and South Isle to the Cathe- 
dral of Eaphoe; five Pounds to buy a Patin for Leixdip Church. 
To St. Martfs and St. PauVs Churches, Dublin, to Youghall 
Church, and to the Cathedral of Cloyne, twenty Pounds a-piece 
for Communion Plate, or to erect Fonts, as his Executors should 
think proper. In his lifetime (viz.), on the 24th of July, 1684, 
he made a Present of a large Basin of Gilt Plate, weighing 
sixty-one Ounces two Penny- weight, to the Cathedral of Kil- 
kenny, of which he was Dean, for which Gift there is an Entry 
of Thanks made in the Chapter Books of that Cathedral. A 
marble Font in Raphoe Cathedral bears the inscription " Ex 
dono Jobannis Pooley, s.t.d. Epis. Rapot. Anno Dom., 1706." 
In 1697 he gave to T.C.D. £200 for " building the Ante- 
Chapel and Regent-House.*' 
1702. Charles Crow, d.d., of Dublin University, was appointed 
Bishop of Cloyne with the Provostship of Tuara, the Warden- 
ship of Youghal, and the Union of Aghadda in commendam, by 
Queen's licence, dated 18 May, and letters patent of 15 Sept., 
1702. He was consecrated on 18 Oct, in Christ Church, 
Dublin, by the Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops 
of Kildare and Derry. [Ware.] 

Charles Crow was son of the Rev. Crow, Chaplain of 

Castleton, in the Isle of Man, where [or according to Ware, at 
Hawkshead, in Lancashire], he was born. He was educated 
at St Bees' school, in Cumberland, his father having been pro- 
moted in that country by one of the Royalists, to whom he had 
shewn hospitality in the Isle of Man during the usurpation. 
Subsequently Charles Crow was entered a member of Queen's 
College, Oxford, but received his degree in Dublin. He came 
to Ireland in or before 1679 as amanuensis to Dr. Andrew 
Sail, a converted Jesuit ; became Usher to Dr. Henry Bider, in 


St. Patrick's school ; and on Rider's promotion to Kilkenny, 
succeeded him at St. Patrick's. He was ordained Deacon at 
Leighlin, on 13 April, 1679, and Priest on 25 March following. 
He was then appointed a Chaplain to the Lord Lieutenant, the 
Earl of Rochester, and became R. Clonenagh, Ossory. From 
1679 to 1726 he was Provost of Tuam, and R. Killereran. 

He expended in improvements on the See-House at Cloyne 
£1,832 5«. lid, as appears by certificate of 20 August, 1719. 

He had an estate of £10 a-year in the Isle of Man, which 
he settled for ever as a glebe to the church of Kirk-Christ, 
Lezayre, where it lies on the North side of the Island. [Ware, 
and Cooper's MS. additions.] Bishop Crow, by great dili- 
gence, recovered to the See a large landed property, namely, 
the lands of Donamore, being 8,000 acres, near Cork. They 
were sold by auction to Bishop Crow for £4,020, and the 
Bishop, in his petition to parliament, says " He is willing to 
quit his bargain for the good of the Church." [Tanner MSS., 
Bodleian.] For Bp. Crowe's services to the See of Cloyne, see 
vol. iii., pages 16-21. 

He gave some silver Communion plate to the cathedral and 
to other churches in his diocese. 

Bishop Crow died on 26 June, 1726, and was buried on 
1 July, at Cloyne. His books were purchased for £1,100 by 
the Chapter of Cork, to form a Cathedral Library. He was a 
great benefactor to the See of Cloyne, and founded a Grammar 
school in that town. His benevolence towards the Widows of 
the Cloyne clergy will appear by the following extract from 
his will : — 

" And not having before named in my will the parcels of 
ground and cabins commonly called the Small Burgery, lying 
and situate in the town of Cloyne, purchased by me from the 
late Earl of Inchiquin— nor the lands of Bohermore, I do now, 
by this Codicil, give, grant, and bequeath the said small Bur- 
gery and the lands of Bohermore to my beloved wife, Catherine 
Crowe, to be employed and laid out in these charitable uses fol- 
lowing : — Imprimis, in lieu of one hundred pounds formerly 
promised by me towards the maintenance of four widows and 
orphans of Clergymen belonging to the Diocese of Cloyne, I 
leave the sum of eight pounds ster. per annum, for ever, to be 
paid out of the rents of the said Small Burgery and lands of 
Boghermore to the Trustees for the said widows and orphans. 
Item, I will and appoint that the remainder of the rents of the 
said Small Burgery and Boghermore be laid out and expended in 
clothing and educating, and binding to apprentices, poor boys 
of the IHocese of Cloyne, as many in number as shall seem 
proper and sufficient to my said wife and to the Revd. Thos. 
Squire, Precentor, and to the Revd. Mr. Walter Atkin, Treasurer 


of Cloyne, and to each others as my said wife shall appoint. 
And after their decease I do hereby appoint and constitute the 
Precentor and Treasurer of Cloyne, for the time being, the 
perpetual Overseers and Trustees of this my Charity, subject 
always to give an account of their proceedings to the Bishop of 
the Diocese for the time being." 

By a deed, dated 3 July, 1727, the Widow of Bp. Crowe 
makes over said lands in trust to Squire and Atkin, to carry 
out the intentions of the Donor. The above bequeathed estate 
produced in 1810, £165 per annum, and the charity was well 
managed. A convenient School House was built in the prin- 
cipal street of Cloyne, and Ten Protestant boys were clothed, 
maintained, and educated. [Bennet MSS.] 

In 1841 this charity seems to have been much abused. The 
Rev. Wm. Rogers exerted himself to improve matters, and re- 
presented, with effect, the miserable state into which the school 
had fallen (thro 1 neglect of the previous trustees and improper 
conduct of the Master), to the Rev, George E, Cotter, the 
Treasurer of the Cathedral.

1726. Heney Maulb, ll.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne, with 
the Provostship of Tuam and the living of Aghada in cvmmen- 
dam, by letters patent of 6 September. [The Provostship of Tuam 
was invested in his patent by mistake, and he did not enjoy it.] 
He was consecrated in the Church of Dunboyn, in the Diocese 
of Meath, on the 19th of September, by Hugh, Archbishop of 
vol. hi. i 
















Armagh, assisted by Welbore, Bishop of Kildare, and Josiah, 
Bishop of Ferns and Leighlin ; his Metropolitan, William, 
Archbishop of Cashell, being, through great age and infirmity, 
incapacitated from doing that office. He wasenthroned at Cloyne 
on 25 Oct., 1726, by James Ward, the Dean. [Ware & D. R.] 

In 1726 there was a rumour that Swift was to be made 
Bishop of Cloyne, to which the Dean alludes in a letter of 
July 15— " As to what you say about promotion, you will find 
it was given immediately to Maule. I assure you I had no 
offers." [Bennet MSS.] 

Henry Maule, ll.d., was born in the Parish of Arklow, in 
the County of Wicklow, a.d. 1676, and had his first Education 
in the Diocesan School of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin ; 
from whence, on the 5th of October, 1691, he was admitted 
into the College of that City. He continued in the University 
nntill he took his Degrees of Batchelor and Master of Arts ; 
and was then put into Orders in the College Chappel by Dr. 
John Pooley, at that time Bishop of Cloyne. His first Promo- 
tion in the Church was to the Rectories of Mallow and Mourn- 
Abby, in the Diocese of Cloyne ; to which he was presented by 
the Government a.d. 1702, and at the same time was made 
Rector of Templeroan and Lackeen, Cloyne, by Dr. John 
Pooley, Bishop of that See. In 1706 he was presented to the 
Rectory of St. Mary, Shandon, in the City of Cork, by the Earl 
of Barrymore, alternate Patron of that Parish with the Earl 
of Kildare ; and the same year made Vicar-General of the 
Diocese of Cork and Ross, by Dr. Dive Downes, then Bishop 
of these Sees. In 1720 he was promoted to the Deanery of 
Cloyne. In 1726 he took the Degree of Doctor of Laws in the 
University of Dublin ; and the same year, upon the death of 
Bishop Crow, he succeeded to this See. 

In 1728, April 6, Bishop Maule granted one acre of land to 
the use of the schoolmaster at Cloyne school. 

He presented a large silver chalice to the Cathedral. 

The preferments, marriages, and other particulars concerning 
this Bishop have been recorded under the Deans of Cloyne. 
vol. ii., page 202-3. 

Maule, in 1757, gave several books, and £10 to be laid out 
in books for the library of T.C.D., designed as a beginning of 
a complete collection of books relating to the affairs of Ireland. 
[Trin. Coll. Cal.] 
1731. Edward Stkob, d.d., was translated to the see of Cloyne 
from that of Clonfert, by King's licence, dated 18 Feb., and by 
patent of 21 March, 1731. [Pat. Rot Cane.] He held the 
union of Aghada in commendam. 

Edward Synge was the eldest son of Edward, Archbishop of 
Tuam (for whom vide vol. i., page 106), and was grandson of 
Edward, Bishop of Cork. 


He was born in 1691, entered T.CJ). on 13 June, 1706, and 
became a Fellow in 1710. He graduated a.b. and A.M. in 
that University, and finally d.d. on 8 March, 1727. 

He was, from 1715 to 1719 P. Stagoml, Dublin ; from 1719 
to 1727, P. St. Audoen's, Dublin ; in 1719 he resigned bis Fel- 
lowship for the R. Cappagh ; from 1726 to 1730 he was Pro- 
vost of Tuam ; from 1727 to 1730, Chancellor of St Patrick's ; 
from 1730 to 1731, Bishop of Clonfert; from 1731 to 1733, 
Bishop of Cloyne ; from 1733 to 1740, Bishop of Ferns and 
Leighlin; and from 1740 to 1762, Bishop of Elphin. 

In 1722 he was admitted a Freeman of Dublin by grace 

He married Jane, dau. of Robert Curtis, Esq., of the King's 
Co. ; and by her, who was buried at St Patrick's, on 1 January, 
1738/9, had issue two sons, Edward and Robert, who both 
died unm., and one daughter, Alicia, who was married on 30 
May, 1758, to the Right Honble. Joshua Cooper, of Markree 
Castle, Co. Sligo. She was buried in St Patrick's, on 16 Oct., 

Bishop Edward Synge died on 27 January, and was buried 
on 1 Feb. 1762, in the family vault of St Patrick's, Dublin. 
[Family Papers.] He wrote the following works : — 

1 . " A Sermon on the Anniversary of the Irish Rebellion, 
preached before the House of Commons, on 23rd October, 
1711." 4to. Dublin, 1711. 

2. " A Sermon on the King's Accession, preached before the 
House of Commons, at St. Andrew's Church." 4to. Dublin, 1719. 

3. " A Sermon, preached at Christ Church, on 5th November, 
1724." 4to. Dublin, 1724. 

4. " A Sermon, preached before the House of Commons, on 
23rd October, 1725." 4to. 

5. " A Sermon on the Anniversary of the Irish Rebellion.** 
4to. 1725. 

6. " A Sermon on the same occasion." 4 to. 1731. 

7. " A Sermon, preached before the House of Lords, at Christ 
Church, Dublin, on the 5th of November." 4to, Dublin, 1737. 

He wrote also some observations on the Messiah, and was 
" very learned in music." [Handel to Jennens. Handel's 
visit to Dublin, by H. Townsend, page 105.] 
1733/4. George Berkeley, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne, 
with the union of Aghada in commendam, by King's Licence, 
dated 18 January, and by patent of 5 March, 1733/4. He 
was consecrated on 19 May, 1734, in St. Paul's Church, Dublin, 
by the Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by the Bishops of Raphoe 
and Killaloe. [Pat Rot Cane, and Cotton.] 

# George Berkeley (whose grandfather wae said to have been 
Collector of Belfast) was born on 12 March, 1684/5, at Kii- 
lerin, near Thomastown, in the county of Kilkenny. The 
vol. in. x 2 


rains of Dyaetfs Castle, near Thomas town, are still shown as his 
birthplace. His father was William Berkeley, who is de- 
scribed in the matriculation entries of his sons, in T.C.D., as 
"generosus" in 1700 ; " Vexill. Equestris" in 1716 ; and "Dux 
Militum" in 1720. This William Berkeley was, according to 
family tradition, an officer in charge of Customs under Charles 
II. Of Bishop Berkeley's mother nothing is known. His 
brothers were : — Rowland, of Newmarket, co. Cork, whose will is 
dated 5 May, 1757 ; Robert, Treasurer of Cloyne, q. v. ; Ralph, 
of Scarteen, near Newmarket, for whom see vol. ii., page 301 ; 
and Thomas, who entered T.C.D. as a Pensioner on 2 March, 

George Berkeley, born, as above stated, in 1684/5, was edu- 
cated at the Kilkenny School, and when 15 years of age entered 
T.C.D. as a Pensioner on 21 March, 1700 ; became a Scholar in 
1702 ; and a Fellow in 1707. 

He was ordained Deacon (being: then a Master of Arts) in 
the Chapel of T.C.D. by the Bishop of Clogher, on 19 Feb., 
1709. [Consist, Office, Dub.] 

In 1713 he went to London, and in the year following went 
with the Earl of Peterborough, to whom he was Chaplain, npon 
a tour through Europe, 1714-15. He spent a long time on the 
continent ; for the Royal licence which he obtained in 1713 to 
travel " for the recovery of his health and his improvement in 
learning" during the space of two years, was renewed in 1715, 
1717, 1719, and 1721. During his absence, in 1717, he was 
ooopted to a Senior Fellowship, and given the degree of d.d. 
He officiated for some years as Chaplain to the British Embassy 
at the Court of the King of Sicily ; and in 1720 when he 
became Archbishop King's Lecturer in Divinity in T.C.D., 
returned to Ireland. 

He was now Chaplain to the Duke of Grafton, Lord Lieuten- 
ant, and from 1721 to 1724 was Dean of Dromore ; from 1724 
to 1733 was Dean of Derry, and R. Ardtrea and Ardboe ; and 
from 1733 to 1753 was Bishop of Cloyne. 

In 1722 Berkeley received a considerable increase to his for- 
tune, by a bequest from Mrs. Esther Vanhomrigh (Vanessa), to 
whom Swift had introduced him in London. 

In Sept., 1728, he sailed for Rhode Island, in order to found 
a Seminary, under the name of St. Paul's College, in Bermuda, 
for converting the savage Americans to Christianity. The 
College, by its charter, was to consist of a President and nine 
Fellows, who were obliged to maintain and educate Indian 
Scholars, at the rate of £10 per annum for each. Dr. Berkeley 
was named President, and the first three Fellows named in the 
Charter were the Rev. William Thompson, Jonathan ftogers, 
and James King, all Fellows of Trinity College, and Masters of 
Arts in the University of Dublin. The Government of the day 


made various excuses for not supplying the sum of £20,000, 
voted by the English House of Commons for this purpose. 

Sir Robert Walpole, the Prime Minister, when pressed on 
this subject by Dr. Gibson, Bishop of London, made the follow- 
ing reply : — " If you put this question to me as a Minister, 1 must 
and can assure you, that the money shall most undoubtedly be 
paid as soon as suits with public convenience; but if you ask 
me as a friend, whether Dean Berkeley should continue in 
America, expecting the payment of £20,000, 1 advise him by 
all means to return home to Europe, and to abandon his present 

It was while engaged on this Utopian scheme, that he was 
described as an absentee in 1729, " the yearly value of his 
estates spent abroad being about £900.*' [Prior's List of Ab- 

In 1732 he was selected to preach the Annual Sermon for 
the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, a honour usually 
confined to Bishops. 

In 1745 he was offered the richer See of Clogher, but de- 
clined, saying, " his neighbours and he loved one another, and 
he could not think of forming new connections in his old days." 

In 1752, finding the infirmities of age come upon him, he 
asked leave to resign his See, and to obtain a Canonry in Christ 
Church, Oxford ; but the King declared he should die a Bishop, 
and gave him liberty to reside where he pleased. He accord- 
ingly left Cloyne, and let the Demesne lands for £200 per an., 
ordering the money to be divided among the poor of Cloyne, 
Youghal, and Aghada. He now settled at Oxford, to superin- 
tend the education of a favourite son ; but died there suddenly 
on Sunday evening, 14 January, 1753, as his wife was reading 
aloud a sermon of Dr. Sherlock's. He was buried in the Cathe- 
dral of Christ Church, where a marble monument is erected to 
his memory, bearing the following inscription by the elegant 
pen of Dr. Markhara, Archbishop of York : — 

" Gravissimo Prceeuli

Bishop Berkeley's first literary efforts appeared in the 
Spectator and Guardian. He wrote also the following works : 

1. " Arithmetics absque Algebra, aut Euclide Demonstrata," 
1707. 2. "Theory of Vision," 1709. 3. "The Principles of 
Human Knowledge," 1710. 4. " Dialogues between Hylas and

Discourse addressed to Magistrates," 1736. 11. "Siris; a

lowed by « Further Thoughts on Tar Water," 1752 ; and by 
"A Word to the Wise, or an Exhortation to the Roman 
Catholic Clergy of Ireland." Dublin. Faulkner. 1752. 

His numerous and valuable works were collected and pub- 
lished in 2 vols. 4 to. London, 1784 ; 3 vols. 8vo. Ibid. 
1820 ; and with a Memoir of his Life by the Rev. G. N. 
Wright, 2 vols. 8vo. Ibid. 1843. 

A Tract on the Roman Catholic Controversy, entitled, "A 
Letter to Sir John James, Bart./' was recently published from 
some MS. papers of the Bishop, which passed into the hands of 
the Rev. Hugh James Rose, oi Cambridge. 8vo. London, 

The following letter, which was given to me by the present 
Archdeacon (Evans) of Cloyne, was addressed by the Bishop to 
Colonel Thomas Evans, of Mill town, near Charleville, whose 
daughter was married to Dean Brace's son. It shows the 
Bishop's kindly disposition to heal a difference between neigh-

" Two nights a*o I received the favor of your letter, bnt

visitation ; from which the Dean happen'd to be detained by 
the illness of his son. I am very sorry there hath arisen any 
difference between yon ; but as you have been silent as to par- 
ticulars, and as the Dean hath mentioned nothing of it to me 
either by word of mouth, letter, or message, I can do no more 
than in general terms recommend peace and good neighbour- 
hood, for the providing of which my best endeavours should 


not be wanting. In tbe mean time give me leave to assure you 
that I have not the least reason to entertain ill-thoughts of 
your conduct ; and that where no blame is imputed all apology

Bishop Berkeley (who married, in August, 1728, Anna, 
eldest daughter of the Right Honble. John Foster, Speaker of 
the Irish House of Commons) had issue (besides a daughter, 
Sarah, buried at Cloyneon 4 March, 1740, a son, William, bap- 
tized at Cloyne on 10 December, 1736, and buried there on 3 
March, 1751 ; and a daughter, Julia, baptized at Cloyne on 15 
Oct., 1738, who died torn.), two sons — Henry, who died in the 
Queen's county \ and George, who became a Canon of Canter- 
bury. This Dr. George Berkeley died on 6 January, 1755, 
having had (besides two sons, who died young) two sons — ► 
George, born 8 Feb., 1763, who died, uw*»., 26 July, 1793; 
and Robert-George, born in 1766, who died, tmro., in 1775. 

In 1752 Bishop Berkeley gave to T.C.D. 120 guineas as an 
endowment for gold Medals, to be given annually for the 
encouragement of the Study of the Greek language. He also 
gave a die for the Medals, 

A full-length picture of the Bishop is now in the Examina- 
tion Hall of T.C.D. ; and another was in the possession of his 
brother's descendant, General Sackville Hamilton Berkeley, of 
4, York-terrace, London. 
1753. Jambs Stopford, a.m., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne by 
King's licence, dated 19 January, and by patent of Feb. 28, 
1753. He was consecrated at St. Anne's Church, Dublin, on 
1 1 March, by the Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by the Bishops 
of Cork and Killaloe. [Pat. Rot Cane, and Cotton.] 

James Stopford, a native of Ireland, was educated at T.C.D., 
and became a Scholar in 1713, and a Fellow in 1717. In 1727 
he resigned his Fellowship. From 1727 to 1753 he was Vicar 
of Finglas ; from 1730 to 1753, Provost of Tuam ; from 1736 
to 1753, Archdeacon of Killaloe ; and from 1748 to 1753, Dean 
of Kilmacduagh. He held this See till his death, which took 
place on the road between Cloyne and Dublin, on August 23, 
1759. While Bishop of Cloyne, he published a Sermon, 
preached before the Incorporated Society. 4 to. Dublin, 1758. 

He married, in 1727, Anne Stopford, sister of the first Lord 
Courtown, and had issue by her, inter alios, three sons, James, 
P. Glanworth, Cloyne, q. v. ; Joseph, P. Ballyhay, Cloyne, q. v.; 
and William, who, I think, was R. V. Nat h lash, Cloyne, q. v. 

Bishop Stopford was buried at St. Anne's, Dublin, where, on 


the outside of the South wall of the Church is a tablet to his 
1769. Robert Johnson, d.t>., was appointed Bishop of Oloyne by 
King's licence of 19 September, and by patent of 11 Oct., 1759. 
He was consecrated in St. Patrick's, Dublin, on 21 Oct, by the 
Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops of Cork and 
Wafcerford. [Pat. Rot. Cane, and Cotton.] 

Robert Johnson was an Irishman, and was educated in 
T.C.D. In 1725 he became Rector of Dungannon, Armagh; 
and in 1755 was P. Coole, Cloyne, q. v. He was domestic 
Chaplain to the Earl of Shannon. Vide vol. ii., page 172-3. 
Johnson arranged and ditched the Demesne lands of Cloyne 
as they were in the time of Bishop Bennet. [Bennet MSS.] 

He died at Cloyne, aged 57, on 16 January, 1767; and by 
his will (dated in 1766, and proved in 1767), left £20 to the 
poor of Yougbal, £10 to the poor of Cloyne, £5 to the poor of 
Aghada, and £10 to the poor of the parish where he should 
happen to die. He was buried in the chancel of Cloyne Cathedral. 
1767. The Honorable Frederick Augustus Hrrvet, a.m., was 
appointed Bishop of Cloyne by King's licence, signed at St. 
James, Feb. 2, and by patent of 2nd March, 1767. He was 
consecrated in Christ Church, Dublin, on 31 May, by the Arch- 
bishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops of Meath and Ferns. 
[Pat. Rot. Cane, and Cotton.] Faulkner's Dublin Journal of 
1 June, 1767, states that the Primate was consecrator, but this 
was an error. [Cotton.] This was the first church preferment 
of Bishop Hervey. [Bennet.] He was translated to Deny by 
patent of 18 Feb., 1768. 

The Honble. Frederick Augustus Hervey (third son of Lord 
Hervey), was born in 1730, and was educated at Westminster, 
and at Corpus Christ i College, Cambridge. He was Chaplain 
in ordinary to the King, and principal Clerk of the Privy Seal 
before he came to Ireland. The Degree of d.d. was given to him 
by diploma, on 6 April, 1770, by the University of Oxford, he 
being at that time a member of Brazennose College. In 1779 
he became, by his grandfather's death, fourth Earl of Bristol. 

" The talents and also the eccentricities of this extraordinary 
prelate have become matters of public history, from the con- 
spicuous part which he played among the Irish delegates of 
the year 1782. His private character was one of many ex- 
cellencies. His taste was refined ; he was a most liberal patron 
of the fine arts ; and both the city and diocese of Deny bear 
testimony to his great munificence. Among many other bene- 
factions, he erected a spire on the Cathedral, and gave .£1,000 
towards the building of the bridge of Deny. The latter years 
of his life were chiefly spent on the Continent of Europe. He 
died at Albano, in Italy, on 18 July, 1803, in the 73rd year 
of his age. 



His body was brought to England, in April, 1804, and wju 
interred in the church of I ck worth, near Bury St. Edmund's, 
Suffolk, the ancient family seat of the Herveys. There is no 
monument to the Bishop within the church ; but in the park 
an obelisk has been raised to his memory, by the contributions 
of the inhabitants of Derry of all denominations ; it bears the 
following inscription : — 

" Sacred to the memory of 

Frederick, Earl of Bristol, 

Bishop of Derry, 

who, during 35 years that he presided 

over that See, endeared himself 

to all denominations of Christians 

resident in that extensive diocese. 

He was the friend and protector of them all. 

His great patronage was 

nniformly administered upon the purest and 

most disinterested principles. 

Various and important public works 

were undertaken at his instigation, 

and completed by his munificence : 

And hostile sects, which had long entertained 

feelings of deep animosity towards each other, 

were gradually softened and reconciled 

by his influence and example. 

Grateful for benefits 

which they can never forget, 

The inhabitants of Derry 

have erected at Ickworth, 

where his mortal remains are deposited, 

this durable record of their attachment. 

The Roman Catholic Bishop 

and the Dissenting Minister resident at Deny 

were among those that contributed 

to this monument." 

On the other side of the obelisk is inscribed : — 

" Opus hoc concivium benevolentia 
Patri institum 
grato animo accepit, et qua par est pietate 

auzit Fiiius." 

In the house of Ickworth there is a marble bust of the 
Bishop, and also a full-length portrait of him, painted by 
Angelica Kauffman ; an engraving from this latter is given in 
Gage's " History and Antiquities of Suffolk." 4to. London, 
1768. Chables Agar, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne by 


• King's licence, dated at Si James, Feb. 12, and by patent of 
26 Feb., 1768. He was consecrated on 20 March following in 
St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, by the Archbishop of Dublin, 
assisted by the Bishops of Kildare and Cork. [Pat Rot. Cane., 
and Cotton.] 

Charles Agar (grandson of Dr. Weibore Ellis, Bishop of 
Meath), was born in 1737, being the son of Henry Agar, of 
Gowran, m.p. He was educated at Westminster, and in 1755 
became a Student of Christ Church, Oxford. He graduated 
m.a. in 1762, and d.c.l. in 1765. He was Chaplain to the 
Duke of Northumberland, and from 1765 to 1768 was Dean of 
Kilmore ; from 1768 to 1779 was Bishop of Cloyne ; from 
1779 to 1801 was Archbishop ef Cashel ; and from 1801 to 
1809 was Archbishop of Dublin. 

He was created Baron Somebton in 1795, Viscount Sokeb- 
ton in 1800, and Eabl of Nobmanton in 1806. 

He married, in 1776 [M. L. 21st Nov.], Jane, eldest dan. of 
William Benson, esq., of the County Down, and had issue, for 
whom, vide the Peerages. 

He died on 14 July, 1809, and was buried in Westminster 
Abbey, where is his monument. 

1780. Gsobge Chinnbby, d.d., was translated to Cloyne from Kil- 
laloe by King's licence of 29 January, and letters patent of 15 
Feb. [Pat. Rot. Cane] He soon sank under bodily infirmi- 
ties, and died at Cloyne on 13 August, in the same year, 1780. 
See an account of him in volume i., page 334-5. 

1781. Richabd Woodwabd, D.o.L., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne 
by King's Licence, dated at St. James, January 7, and by 
patent of 3 Feb., 1781. He was consecrated at Christ Church, 
Dublin, by the Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishops 
of Ossory and Clonfert [Rot. Pat. Cane, and Cotton.] 

The family of Bishop Woodward seems to have been con- 
nected with the forest of Dean from a very early period. In 
1315 the levies required from the forest of Dean for the fleet 
under the command of John Botetourte, were to be made under 
the advice and direction of Woodward, son of William Le 
Woodward. And in the following year Woodward, son of 
William Woodward, is certified as one of the Lords of the 
township of Micheldean, Little Dean, and Abbenhall, in the 
county of Gloucester. See the Calendarium inqutsitionum post 
mortem. Vol. iv. (Bath Lit. Ins tit) In 1420, John Wood- 
ward, of Dean Forest, obtains a grant of the following arms, 
viz. : 3 bars gules ; over all as many stags' heads cabossed, or, 
2 and 1 ; on a chief of the last a wolf passant gules ; between 
2 Pheons sable. [Pedigree, as recorded by Tristram Wood- 
ward, in the Herald's College of Arms.] 

Sixth in descent from John Woodward, of Great Dean, 
Gloucestershire, was Thomas, the son of John Woodward, of 


Bristol, by Joanna Culley. This Thomas was admitted to the 
freedom of Bristol on 3 June, 1608, was chosen into the cor- 
poration on 15 July, 1635, and in 1636 was Sheriff of that 
place. He was also appointed Mayor, hut refused to serve, and 
was in consequence fined i'50. This Thomas Woodward pur- 
chased the estate of Grimsbury, near Bitton, and lived in the 
parish of St. Nicholas, in the crypt of which church he was 
buried on 20 January, 1667/8. He left issue by his wife, Ann 
Jones, of Bristol, inter alios, a son Francis, of Bitton, who, in 
1682, recorded his arms as above at the Herald's Visitation, 
and died in August, 1683, leaving an only son, Francis. 

This Francis, last named, was twice married. By his first 
wife, Dorothy, the youngest dau. of Sir John Newton, Baronet, 
of Barr's Court, Bristol, he had issue, and by that branch of 
the family the Bitton estate was sold. By his second wife, 
Elisabeth Bird, of Bristol, he had two sons, Richard, Bishop of 
Cloyne, and Francis, m.d., who married Miss Mary Plaistre, 
and died S. P. in 1785. Francis (the Bishop's father), died in 
1730, aged 60 years, and was buried with his first wife, 
Dorothy, in the Newton aisle of Bitton Church. Elisabeth 
(the bishop's mother), afterwards became the wife of Dr. Josiah 
Tucker, Dean of Gloucester, and was buried at Bristol, in the 
Cathedral of which place is a marble monument erected to her 
memory, with the following inscription :— 

" Near this place lie the remains of 

Elisabeth, wife of the reverend Josiah Tucker^ d.d., 

Dean of Gloucester, and relict of Francis Woodward, 

of Grimsbury, in the County of Gloucester, Esqr. 

To perpetuate 

as far as a perishable monument will permit 

the memory of this excellent woman. 

To record 

Her virtuous application of singular talents 

(which else were void of value as of merit 1) 

Her exemplary conduct as a Christian, 

Her matchless tenderness and prudence as a mother, 

This marble is erected, 

as a small tribute of filial piety, 

By Francis Woodward, m.b., and Richard (Woodward), 

Lord Bishop of Cloyne. 

In the ground adjoining, at her own request, 

is deposited the body of Mary, wife of the 

abovementioned Francis Woodward, 
That she might not be severed in the grave 

From one 

To whom in life she was cordially united 

By ties more strict than those of blood, 

By congenial principles, by kindred virtues. 


Francis Woodward, m.b., departed this life 

the 12th Oct., 1785, aged 64. 

Richard Woodward, d.d., departed this life 

the 12 of May, 1794, aged 67. 

Susanna Woodward (late Blake), 

departed this life the 11th of May, 1795, 

aged 63, and lies in the same tomb 

with her beloved Husband 

in the Cathedral of Cloyne." 

Richard Woodward (whose ancestry has been thns traced), 
was baptized at Old lands, near Bitton, in July, 1726, and was 
educated at first by his step-father, Dean Tucker, and in 1743 
was entered at Wadham College, Oxford, where he graduated 
b.o.l. in 1749, and d.c.l. in 1759. 

R. Woodward was presented by Mr. Combe to the Rectory 
of Donnyatt, Ilminster, in the diocese of Bath and Wells. 
Having, however, during his travels on the Continent, when a 
young man, fonned an intimate acquaintance with the Right 
Honorable Thomas Conolly, of Castletown, a man of immense 
influence in those days, and whose sister was wife to Lord 
Buckinghamshire, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1777 to 
1780, he was encouraged by that gentleman to settle in Ire- 
land. To Mr. Oonolly's interest, Woodward [See Mant., voL 
ii., page 769] owed all his preferments. 

He was, from 1763 to 1781, Dean of Clogher ; from 1772 
to 1778, Chancellor of St. Patrick's and R. St. Werburgh's, 
Dublin ; in 1777 be became First Chaplain to the Lord Lieu- 
tenant; from 1778 to 1781 he was R. Louth, Armagh; and 
in 1780 was nominated by Lord Buckinghamshire to the 
Bishoprick of Cloyne. 

Bishop Woodward was distinguished as a good scholar, an 
able preacher, and a zealous and effective friend to the church. 

He wrote — 

1. "An Argument in support of the Right of the Poor in 
Ireland to a national Provision.' 1 8vo. Dublin, 1772. 

2. " An address to the Public on the Expediency of a regular 

?lan for the Maintenance and Government of the Poor." 8vo. 
)ublin, 1775. 

3. " The present State of the Church of Ireland." 8vo. 
1787. Of this tract [savs Dr. Reid, Hist. Presbyt.J, four 
editions were published within twelve days, and nine within a 
few months of its first issue. It excited against the author 
the violent enmity of the foes of the Church, and gained him 
great applause from her friends. The Deans and Chapters of 
Christ Church and of St. Patrick's Cathedrals, in Dublin, voted 
their united thanks to him for his seasonable publication. 


4. " A charge delivered to the Clergy at the Visitation in 
July, 1793." 4to. Cork, 1793. 

Bishop Woodward died on 12 May, 1794, aged 67, and was 
buried at Cloyne Cathedral, in the north transept of which is a 
monument, with this inscription : — 

" Sacred 
To the memory of 
Richard Woodward, Bishop of Cloyne, 
Aged 67. 1794. 
Whose superior taleuts, enlightened by extensive Learning, 
and invigorated by an active Intercourse with the World, 
were devoted to the Discharge of his Duty as a Citizen, 
Parochial Minister, and Prelate, with the most earnest zeal, 
soundest discretion, and truest Liberality. 

He planned, and was the principal lnstitutor of the House 
of Industry in Dublin, in 1773. 

He was an eloquent and distinguished Advocate in the Honse 
of Peers for the Repeal of the Roman Catholic Penal Statutes 
in 1782; and the Author of "the Present State of the Church 
of Ireland," published in 1787 ; and is hence justly to be de- 
nominated the Father of the Poor — the friend of Toleration — 
and the Support and Ornament of the Protestant Established 

In pious Gratitude for the uninterrupted Happiness which 
she owed to his amiable domestic Character, this Monument 
is erected by his afflicted Widow, 

Susanna Woodward. 

Bishop Woodward had issue by his wife, Susannah [whom 
he married on 6th Oct., 1763], dau. of Richard Blake, esq., of 
Bristol, five sons and two daughters, namely : —

II. Louisa, who died unmarried. 

Bishop Woodward's relict died, aged 63, on 11 May, 1795, 
and was buried at Cloyne with her husband. 

Bishop Woodward nsed the following arms: — "as. a pale 
(engrailed for difference) between two eagles, displayed arg. 
Crest, on a ducal coronet or, a greyhound sejant arg." But the 
Bishop's grandson, Richard, the eldest son of the Rector of 
Glan worth, resumed the Dean arms, as recorded above, page 
1794. William Brnnxt, d.d., was translated from Cork to Cloyne, 
by King's licence, dated at St. James's, 20 May, and by patent 
of 27 June. He was enthroned by proxy on 1 July, 1794. 
[Pat. Rot Cane, and D.R.] , 

William Bennet, born in London, in the spring of the year 
1746, was educated at Harrow (where he had for schoolfellows, 
Sir W. Jones, Sir John Farnell, Dr. Parr, Ac, 4rc.) ; and at Em- 
manuel College, Cambridge, where he was matriculated a 
Pensioner, on 26 March, 1763, and was elected Fellow on 14 
April, 1769. He graduated b.a. in 1767! m.a. in 1770, bj>. in 
1777, and d.d. in 1790. 


Haring been made First Chaplain and Private Secretary to 
(his uncle?) the Earl of Westmoreland, Lord Lieutenant of 
Ireland, he was appointed Bishop of Cork and Ross in 1790, 
and in 1794 became Bishop of Cloyne. He was also f.s.a., 
and contributed much, on Roman Roads, to Nicholas' Leicester 
and Polwhele*s Cornwall. He was a constant correspondent of 
Dr. Parr, Dr. Farmer, Rev. Wm. Cole, and Mr. Gough . 

It appears that the Bishop was at one time very anxious to 
obtain the provostship of Trinity College, Dublin, to be holden 
in commendam with his bishoprick ; namely, at the death of 
Provost Hutchinson, in 1795 ; but this scheme was frustrated, 
partly through the indignant remonstrance of Edmund Burke. 
[See " The Correspondence between E. Burke and Dr. French 
Laurence/' p. 301.] 

Bishop Bennet maintained till his death an intimacy and 
friendship with his old schoolfellow, the learned Dr. Samuel 
Parr, who appears to have entertained for him a high respect. 
Many letters whicb passed between them are published in the 
" Works of Samuel Parr, ll.d., by J. Johnstone." 8vo. London, 
1828, in vols, i., vii., and viii. In the fourth volume also ap- 
pear two Latin epitaphs, written by Dr. Parr at the Bishop's 
desire ; both seemingly intended for the cloisters of Emmanuel 
College, Cambridge, at whicb he had received his education, 
and had long resided. They are as follows :—

Dr. Parr thus writes — " Sweet is tbe refreshment afforded to 
my soul by tbe remembrance of such a Scholar, such a man, 
and such a friend as Dr. Wm. Bennet, Bishop of Cloyne." 

Bishop Bennet left some valuable papers to the See of Cloyne, 
which are now printed in the first part of this volume. 

He married in 1791 Frances, daughter of Rev. Nathaniel 
Mapletoft, rector of Broughton, Northamptonshire, by Anna 
Maria, dau. of Charles, 5th Viscount Ctjllen. The Bishop 
died S.P. in London, on 16 July, 1820, and was buried in the. 
church of Plumstead, in Kent. His relict survived him. In 
Cloyne Cathedral is a monument with the following inscrip- 
tion : — 

" Sacred to the Memory of the 
Right Rev. William Bennet, D.D., 
For 26 years Lord Bishop of the Diocese of Cloyne. 
A man of varied Attainments, refined Literary Taste, singularly 
modest and courteous in Manners, of great Simplicity of Spirit, 
and genuine Philanthropy of Heart. Called in the Providence 
of God to a high and responsible Office in the Church of Eng- 
land, he was anxious that she should maintain that dignified 


Post in the Defence and Dissemination of the Holy Scriptures, 
which the Reformation taught her to occupy, and which her 
Interest and Duty alike forbid her to abandon ; he therefore, 
during a Period of Ten Tears, was a zealous Vice-President of 
that noble Institution, the British and Foreign Bible Society ; 
its sacred Cause was near his Heart ; its Vindication opened his 
Lips, and drew from their Concealment Talents of no mean 
Order ; nor was Death permitted to close his Eyes until he had 
witnessed its unparalleled Success under the manifest Blessing 
of the Most High. 

He resigned his Spirit into the Hands of his Creator, on the 
16th day of July, 1820, in the 75th Year of his Age." 

Bp. Bennet, as already stated, left no issue. He had a brother 
a Captain in the Army, who died S.P., and a sister, wife of Cap- 
tain Benjamin Johnson, of the Waterford Militia, the last of 
the 50 Pompadours of Drink water's Siege of Gibraltar. This 
Captain B. Johnson, who died circa 1830, had issue the Rev. 
Benjamin Burton Johnson (see Vol. ii., p. 303), [who married 
Mary Anne, second dau. of Henry Thornhill, Esq., of Castle- 
kevin, Co. Cork, and had issue, inter alios, Henry-Thornhill, 
William-Ben net, John-Thomas, and Mary-O'Hara] ; Robert, 
deceased ; and two daughters, Mrs. Nagle and Mrs. Reynet. 
1820. Charles Monoan Wabburton, d.d., was translated to Cloyne 
from Limerick by licence dated from Carlton House, 26 
August, and by patent dated 18 Sept, 1820. [Lib. Mun., and 
Pat. Rot. Cane] 

Of Charles Mongan or War bur ton, some account, has been 
given in volume ii., page 562-3. 

He died at Cloyne on 9 August, 1826, and was buried in 
that Cathedral on 12th August On his tombstone is this in- 
scription : — 

" To the Memory of the 

Right Rbv. Charles Wabburton, d.d., 

Lord Bishop of Cloyne, 

Deceased 9th August, a.d. 1826, 

Aged 72 years. 

This memorial of affectionate Regret is erected by his discon- 
solate Widow, Frances Warburton, and Children. He was con- 
secrated Bishop of Limerick 13th July, 1806, and translated 
to this See 20th September, 1820. To a dignified Deportment in 
the strict Discharge of his Holy Office, he united most enga- 
ging Suavity of Manners and unbounded Benevolence.*' 

The children of Bishop Warburton, by his wife, Frances 
Marsden, of New York, were as follows : — I. Garnet, died 
unm. II. Augustus Frederick, Colonel 85th Light Infantry, 
died unm. IIL Rev. Charles (see Vol. ii., page 149) who, by

youngest dau. of Sandford Palmer, Esq., of Killetra, near Mal- 
low [by Mary-Anne, sole heiress (on the death of her brother, 
Simon F. Davies, Esq., of Farthingville) of Robert Davies, 
Esq., of Farthingville, co. Cork, eldest son of the Bev. Simon 
Davies (Vol. ii., p. 250), who was a grandson of the celebrated 
Rowland Davies, Dean of Cork] and has issue six sons — [John, of 
the 60th Rifles, who married Martha, dau. of Capt. Mi tall, of 
the 60th Rifles ; Sandford, of the 3rd Buffs, who married 
Helen Baker ; Charles ; Garnet ; Augustus ; and Frank, Ensign 
89th Begt., who died 11 July, 1858] ; and four daughters — 
Marianne, Alice, Anna-Maria, and Eliza. The Bishop had also 
a daughter, Charlotte, wife of Rev. William Wray Maunsell, 
for whom see Vol. ii., p. 311. 
1826. John Brinkley, d.d., was appointed Bishop of Cloyne, by 
letters patent, dated 28 September. He was consecrated in 
the Chapel Royal, Dublin Castle, on 8 October, 1826, by 
Richard, Archbishop of Cashel, assisted by the Bishops of 
Meath and Kildare. [Cotton.] 

John Brinkley, d.d., f.r.s., m.b.i.a., «fec, <fec, was the son of 
John Toler Brinkley, of Woodbridge, in Suffolk, where he was 
born- in the year 1766. He was under the tuition of the Bev. 
Mr. Dimsdale, of Benhall, Suffolk, for one year, and for three 
years was educated by the Bev. Mr. Black, of Woodbridge, in 
the private house of that clergyman. He then entered Caius 
College, Cambridge, on 29 August, 1783, being then 17 years 

The high mathematical talent which he showed while a mere 
boy ripened at Cambridge, where he attained the most dis- 
tinguished honors, being Senior Wrangler of his year, and 
Smith's Prizeman, and soon after Fellow of Caius College. He 
graduated b.a. in 1788, and m.a. in 1791. 

His character was now so high that when the Provost of 
Trinity College, Dublin, applied to Dr. Maskelyne, the then 
Astronomer Royal, to name the best person he knew for the 
Professorship of Astronomy in that University, he at once 
selected Brinkley. He was appointed to this office in 1792 ; 
and while he made the Observatory one of the most famous in 
Europe, he was not less distinguished by his researches in pure 
mathematics, some of which were of an order far beyond the 
powers of any co temporary British Geometrician, especially 
those belonging to what has since been called the Calculus of 


Operations. The most remarkable part of his Astronomical work 
is his investigation of the Parallax of some Fixed Stars. He 
found in them an annnal change, following the law of Parallax, 
which he naturally referred to that cause. More perfect in- 
struments have since made it probable that this variation pro- 
ceeded from the effect on the Circle of varying temperature ; 
but he had good reason for his belief. There is a minute dis- 
turbance of the Earth's axis, caused by the sun ; its existence 
and the limits of its amount are given by theory, but it had 
never before been detected by observation. This Solar Nuta- 
tion was precisely shown by these very observations, and he 
could scarcely doubt that the other was given with equal truth. 
In the course of this discussion he first made British Astrono- 
mers acquainted with the method of Minimum Squares, that 
powerful method of obtaining from a series of observations their 
most probable result. For these investigations he received the 
Royal Society's Copley Medal, and for one on the motion of the 
Moon's Apsis, the Royal Irish Academy's Cunningham Medal. 
Among many other matters may be noted his value of the 
Cotistant of Lunar Nutation, and his Tables of Refraction, re- 
markable for their simplicity and exactness. 

His powers were not limited to the range of these abstract 
Sciences) as instances may be given in his profound knowledge 
of Botany, and the readiness with which, when appointed on 
the Commission of Irish Records, he mastered the difficulties 
of that Antiquated Lore. His knowledge of the history of the 
Church of Ireland was quite remarkable, and it is much to be 
regretted that he has left so little of it on record. 

Professor Brinkley was, from 1806 to 1826, P. Kilgoghlin, 
Elphin ; from 1806 to 1810, R. Derrybrusk, Clogher ; he was 
appointed Y. Laracor, Meath, on 23rd Feb., 1808, but resigned 
it in December of the same year ; from 1808 to 1826 he was 
Archdeacon of Clogher. He was elected, in 1822, President of 
the Royal Irish Academy. He vacated his Professorship of 
Astronomy in 1826, when appointed to the See of Cloyne, aud 
from that time ceased from any active pursuit of Science, and 
devoted himself wholly to his Episcopal duties. His health, 
however, failed for some years before his death, which took 
place on the 14th September, 1835, leaving in all who had ever 
known him the highest feelings of veneration and love. 
[T. R. R.] 

He was buried in the Chapel of T.O.D. A marble tablet to 
his memory is in Cloyne Cathedral, with this inscription : 

* Sacred 
To the Memory of the 
Right Rev. John Brinkley, d.d., 
Late Bishop of Cloyne ; previously Professor of Astronomy in 
Dublin College, and up to his death President of the Royal

Irish Academy. He died in Dublin, September, 1835, aged 
69 years, and his remains were deposited in the vaults of the 

" Quick in discerning and rewarding Professional Merit, and 
anxious to rule with Firmness without Severity, he succeeded in 
maintaining Discipline without provoking Complaint. In general 
literature and Natural History, as well as in Science, his Attain- 
ments were accurate and diversified, and his Communications 
interesting and instructive ; learned, without Pedantry, and 
pious without Ostentation ; unaffectedly kind to every Mem- 
ber of his Household ; liberal in his Charity, and given to 
Hospitality. His Death was generally deplored, and his 
Memory is justly revered by those who have raised this hum- 
ble Record of his Worth." 

In 1846 a marble bas-relief, presenting a side view of the 
Bishop, with his hand extended upon an open book, was 
erected in the vestibule under the College Library : on its 
pedestal is the following inscription :—

Though Bishop Brinkley's great talents were in constant 
exercise, his published works are not numerous : they consist 
of " The Elements of Astronomy," for the use of the Students 
of Trinity College; and several papers preserved in the 
" Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy. 

Bishop Brinkley was married to Esther Weld, daughter of 
Mathew Weld, Esq., of Dublin, for whom see vol. ii., page 446. 
By her the Bishop had issue two sons — 1. John, P. Gian worth, 
Cloyne, q. v. ; 2. Mathew, a Vicar-Choral of Cloyne, q. v. 


The Bishop had also a daughter, Sarah, wife of the late Robert 
James Graves, Esq., m.d. She died without issue. 

On the death of Bishop Brinkley, the See of Cloyne became 
united to those of Cork and Ross, by the Act 3 and 4 Will. IV., 
o. 37. So that henceforward the Bishops of Cloyne will be 
found under the diocese of Cork* 




This See is not valued in the King's Books ; but, in a Manuscript 
in the College Library, I find a Taxation thereof mentioned to be 
made, A no. 31 Eliz., at 19/. sterl., and in another Manuscript in 
Marsh's Library, Anno 33 Eliz., at 101. sterl. 

The Chapter consists of a Dean, Chantor, Chancellor, Treasurer, 
Archdeacon, and five Prebendaries, vis. : — Timoleague, de Insula, 
Carrogranemore, Templebryan, and Doonaghmore ; and the Diocese 
is divided into three Rural Deaneries, viz. : — Artagh, Tirerril, and 

St. Fachnan, a Man of wisdom and probity (as the Writer of the 
Life of St Mocoemog calls him) flourished in the beginning of the 
sixth Century. He was called Fachnan-Mongach, or the Hairy, 
because he was born with Hair ; and was Abbat of a Monastery in 
the Island of St. Mo) an fid [Molana], near Toughall, formerly called 
Dar-Inis. The before-named writer of the Life of Mocoemog relates 
the following Passage of St. Fachnan and his Abby and noble School 
of Boss, near the Vergivian Sea : — 

" St Fachnan lived in a Monastery of his own Foundation : 
There a City grew up, in which there always continued a large 
Seminary for Scholars, which is called Ross-Ailithri." Meredith 
Hanmer, in his Chronicle of Ireland, affirms, but I am at a loss to 
know from what authority, that St Brendan taught the Liberal 
Arts in that School. It is not easy to point out the time when a 
Cathedral was founded here, or who was the first Bishop of it. How- 
ever, I cannot but be of Opinion that St Fachnan himself was the 
first Bishop of Ross, and the founder of this Cathedral. For I find 
him expressly called Bishop in au antient Martyrology, under the 
14th of August; on which Day his Festival is celebrated. I find 
no account in what year St. Fachnan died. 

I must observe, by the Way, that Ross signifieth a verdant plain ; 
or, as some say, a place where Heath or Broom grows ; and Ailithri, 
a Pilgrimage ; the place having been antiently much resorted to in 
Pilgrimage. It is now called Roscarbre, from the Barony, or tract 
of Country, wherein it is situated ; and Rosselihir, in a Charter of 
King John, whereby he confirmed to Adam Roch the cantred of 
Rosselihir, with all its appurtenances, saving the Demesne of the 
Bishop of that place; and it is named Rossylidir in other Re- 
cords. [ Vide CompuU Job. Samford in Offic. Remgm, Ad. Ann, 
50 Edw. L] 


St. Finchad is said [but Lanigan (Ecc. Hist, ii., 197) says this is a 
mistake], to have succeeded. He wan one of the Disciples of St. 
Barr, and educated at his School, near Lough-Eirce, ia the South 
and Maritime parts of Monster : of whom, or his successors, untill the 
Arrival of the English in Ireland, I have no more to say, except 
of one, 

Dongal Mao-Folact, whom Flaherty [Ogyg. p. 330] makes the 

27th Bishop of Ross from Fachnan, all of one Sept or House ; and 

for his authority quotes an Irish distich out of the Book of Lecan, 

which he thus Translates : — 

Dongalas a Fachtna, ter nonus Episcopiu, extat 
Lugadia de gente, dedit cui Roasia mitram. 

But which the Reverend Mr. Dunkin hath been more happy in 

paraphrasing thus : — 

u Hail happy Ross ! who con'd produce thrice nine, 
All mitred Sages of Lugadia's Line, 
From Facbnan, crown'd with everlasting Praise, 
Down to the date of Dongal s pious Days." 


One Benedict was Bishop of this See in 1172, and sat about 
eighteen years after. [Ware.] 

1190. Maurice, who succeeded, died in 1196. [Ware.] 
1197. One Daniel, a Secular Priest, was, by the Authority of Pope 
Celestin the Hid.,* consecrated at Rome, by the Bishop of Albe, 
about the year 1197. But he obtained the See by vile and 
indirect Means. He forged Letters from several Bishops of 
Ireland, asserting his Election ; and thus deluded the rope 
to give him Confirmation, and an order for Consecration. 

Florence and E , both Monks of Ross, went to the Pope, 

each of them pretending to have been elected ; and Florence 
made a loud Clamour against the injustice and circumvention 
of Daniel, by means of the Forgeries aforesaid. Pope Celestin 
committed the Examination of the Pretensions of these three 
Candidates to Mathew O'Heney, Archbishop of Cashell, and 
Charles O'Heney, Bishop of Killaloe, and gave them Instruc- 
tions that if they found Daniel had been canon ically Elected, 
they should quiet him in the Possession ; if otherwise, that 

they should hear the Cause between Florence and E , and 

that the Archbishop of Cashell should consecrate whichever of 
them was found to be canonically elected. In pursuance of 
this Mandate, these two Prelates proceeded on the Inquiry, and 
first upon the Election of Daniel. They cited him three times 
to appear ; but being sensible that his Cause would not bear 
Examination, he stood out all Process, and was pronounced 
Contumacious. They next inquired into the other Elections of 
Florence and E ; and it appeared by the concurrent Testi- 
monies of the Clergy and People of Ross, of the King of Cork, 
and of the Prelates of the Province, that Florence was canoni- 


cally chosen, and the other not so much as put in Election : 
Upon which they confirmed Florence by the Apostolick Autho- 
rity. During these proceedings Pope Celestin died, and Innocent 
the Hid. was advanced to the Papal Chair. Daniel laid hold 
of this Opportunity, and took another Journey to Rome. 
Without taking any Notice of the former Commissions or 

Elections in Relation to Florence and E , he suggested to the 

Pope, that when he returned to the See of Ross, with the Letters 
of Pope Celestin, the King of Cork inhibited him from entering 
the Diocese or Church of Ross, untill he payed or promised him a 
certain Sum of Money ; which his Friends having engaged for 
without his knowledge, he was then admitted, and governed 
.the See for half a-year : But refusing to perform his Friends' 
contract, the King, moved with anger, commanded the Dean 
to withdraw all Obedience from him ; which the Dean, although 
bound by a Canonical Oath, yet readily complied with, because 
he would not be prevailed on to confer the Archdeaconry on 
his Son, an infant : And not so only, but the Dean had the 
Presumption to steal away the Consecrated Oyl ; and having 
excommunicated him for this offence, the Week after he stole 
away the Books of the Church of Ross, and went over to the 
King's PaTty in opposition to him : That being put under such 
Difficulties, he was obliged to fly out of the said King's Domi- 
nions, and throw himself for relief at his Holiness's Feet. 
Upon this complaint, Pope Innocent the Hid. sent his manda- 
tory Letters to his Legates, commanding them to admonish the 
King of Cork to admit Daniel into the See of Ross without any 
expectation of Money, or otherwise to excommunicate him, and 
interdict his Lands : And as to the Dean, that if it appeared 
to be as Daniel had represented the Case, that they should 
suspend him oh officio et bmpficio, and send him to Rome, and 
should pronounce him excommunicated untill he repented. 
He obtained also Apostolick Letters against the Bishop of 
Cork, and against his Competitor, Florence, by asserting that 
the Bishop of Cork had detained the Rights of the See of Ross, 
and that Florence had laid violent Hands on the Archdeacon 
and Clergy of that See. Upon which Florence found it neces- 
sary to take a Journey to Rome. He laid before the Pope an 
account of the Proceedings of the Prelates of Cashell and 
Killaloe on the Commission before mentioned. The Pope, 
fearing to be circumvented by forged Letters as his Predecessors 
had been, remanded Florence to the Archbishop and Bishop, 
with a Mandate to cite Daniel, if in Ireland, and to proceed 
cauonically in the Cause. But if he were not in Ireland, that 
then they should, by Apostolick Authority, commit the Admi- 
nistration of the See of Ross, both in Spirituals and Temporals, 
to Florence, and should consecrate him Bishop. But if Daniel 
were in Ireland, and should refuse to appear on a Citation in 


three Months, that in such case they should consecrate Florence 
without any farther Delay : and he took away all power of 
Appeal in the Cause, least the Church of Ross, which had been 
vacant near three Tears, should continue longer without a 
Pastor. Florence, upon his return home, was consecrated, and 
a final end put to the Controversy ; of which there is a full 
Account given in the Decretal Epistles of Pope Innocent the 
Hid. [Edit. Baluzii, Lib. i., Epist 367 : tit. Cum olim.] 

12 — ! One Florence, a Monk, although I cannot tell of what Order, 
was elected Bishop of Ross, and took a Journey to Rome, where 
he laid open to Pope Innocent the Hid. the fraud used by his 
Predecessor Daniel, in procuring himself to be illegally elected, 
or rather thrust upon the See without Election, by forgery, as 
you see before in the account given of him. Upon his Return 
home, he was consecrated by his own Metropolitan. 

In 1210 he was suspended by the Pope from the Power of 
ordaining, for having misbehaved in conferring the three 
Orders in one Day on William, elect Bishop of Emly. He died 
in 1222. [Ware and Harris.] 

1222. Robert, or as some call him, Richard, succeeded. He was 
Bishop in 1225 ; but I have not discovered how long he sat 
after. [Ware.] 

12 — 1. Malechias, Episcopus Roesae, appears in Pipe Colman, 
page 33. He held land in Coole from the Chapter of Cloyne, 
which he gave equally to his two sons, of whom the elder was 
called Johannes Ohonacha, and the younger Lauren ti us. The 
younger son died without heirs, whereupon Nicholas, Bishop 
of Cloyne, entered on his land and took possession. 

12 — ?. Florence, or Finin, O'Cloqhena, resigned in 1252. [Ware.] 

1253. One Maurice, Chanter of Cloyne, was elected Bishop of Ross, 
and confirmed by the King's Letters Patent in 1253. He re- 
signed by virtue of a Licence obtained for that End from the 
Pope, in 1269, and joined himself to a brotherhood of the Fran- 
ciscan Friers. Tet the Resignation of this Prelate took some 
years to bring to perfection : For we find in the Vatican Re- 
gistry [Regest. Pontiff in Wading. Tom. 2, p. 100], an 
Epistle from Pope Clement the IVth to the Archbishop of 
Cashell in 1265, impowering him to receive the Cession of 
Maurice, and to absolve him from his Obligations to the Church 
of Ross ; grounded upon this, that Maurice before his Advance- 
ment had entered into Vows that he would become a Fran- 
ciscan Frier, and yet had transgressed them by accepting of 
that promotion ; by which great scandal had arose. 

He also alleged in the said Epistle, that Maurice was un- 
qualified to govern the See of Ross, both from his want of 
Learning and the weakness of his Constitution. [Ware and 


1269. Waltbu O'Micthian, a Franciscan Frier, succeeded in 1269, 
and died on 25 Dec, 1274, having sat five years. [Ware, and 
MS. T.C.D.F. 1. 18.] 

1275. Pbtbb O'Hulleoan, or O'Halohan, a Oistertian Monk, was 
consecrated in 1275, and had his Writ of Restitution to the 
Temporalities on the 25th of March the same year, and was 
restored the 13th of April following, as appears among the Ex- 
chequer Records. 

Hediedinl290. [Ware, and Rot., Pat. 3 Edward I., Memb. 3.] 

1290. Before the end of the same year, 1290, one Laurbnoe, Canon 
of Ross, was elected next successor. He sat 19 years, and died 
in 1309, and was buried in his own Cathedral. Of the antient 
Franchises of this See, viz, Wrecks of Sea, or Ship Wrecks, <kc, 
the Reader may See an Inquisition [29 Edw. 1., Memb. 20], 
among the records of the Court of King's Bench, Dublin, in the 
Cause of this Laurence. [Ware.] 

1309/10. Matthew O'Fin succeeded. On the 8th of March, 1309 
(English Stile), King Edward the II. granted a Licence to the 
Dean and Chapter, to proceed to an Election; and they chose 
Matthew OTin, who was an Abbat, but I don't know of what 
Convent. He died on the 16th of October, 1330. This Pre- 
late recovered by default, and restored to his See, several of the 
Possessions of it, which had been unjustly usurped by Thomas 
Earret and Philip de Carew [viz., two Plow-Lands and a half, 
150 acres of Wood, 150 acres of Pasture in Eilaghathanglish, 
Lystrankan, Clonka, and Lystorkan, from the said Barret ; the 
Lands of Fathuan and Ross, two Plowlands and a half, 150 
acres of Wood, and 150 acres of Pasture, with the Appurten- 
ances, in Fornath, Corkbeg, Tyrofynachta, and Knocknahanly, 
from the said Carew.] But the Crown thought this Recovery 
was by Collusion to avoid the Statutes of 7th Edward the I., 
and of Westminster the Second, commonly called the Statutes 
of Mortmain ; and therefore an Inquest of Office was held to 
try the Collusion, by which the Jury found in favour of the 
Bishop, and there was no Collusion in the Recovery. [Ware 
and Harris.] 

1331. Laurence O'Holdecan, or O'Hctllucan, succeeded by law- 
ful Election, and was confirmed by the Dean and Chapter of 
Cashell, during the Vacancy of that See, on the last of April, 
1331. He governed this See no longer than four years, and 
died in 1335. [Ware]. 

1336. Dennis succeeded next, and was consecrated in 1336. One 
Dennis, Bishop of Ross, died in 1377 : 1 suppose him to be 
the same man. It is certain the See was that year vacant, 
and the Custodee of it was fined 100 Marks for not appearing 
upon Summons at the Parliament held at Castledermot, 
Anno. 1. Rich. 2, as appears in the Rolls Office. [Ware and 
Harris.] In 1358, the King, who had an esteem tor him, on 


account of his diligence in reforming the people of bis diocese, 
restored to him certain lands, of which he had been improperly 
deprived by the Royal Escheator. [Cotton ex Rot., Clans. 32, 
Edw. III.] 

1378. Bernard O'Connor, a Franciscan Frier, succeeded by the 
Pope's Provision ; and having taken the Oath of Allegiance, 
obtained the Royal Assent on the 3rd of February, 1378, 
(English Stile.) [Ware.] 

1402. Stephen Brown, Professor of the Order of the Friars Carme- 
lites, succeeded by the Provision of Pope Boniface the IXth., 
and was restored to the Temporalities on the 6th of May, 1402, 
having renounced all Clauses in the Pope's Bull prejudicial to 
the rights of the Crown. [Ware, and Rot. Cane. 3° Hen. IV., 

Mem. — His privy seal was in the possession of the late Very 
Rev. Richard Butler, Dean of Clonmacnois and Vicar of Trim. 
It is circular, containing, within a double treasure of interlaced 
trefoils, a shield, bearing quarterly three bars, and a mitre ; 
and is inscribed seorbtvm stepanx rpiscopi rossensis. [Cot- 

14 — ? One Matthew, Bishop of Ross, died about the year 1418. 
[Ware.] He must have died in 1417, for Richard, Abp. 
of Cash ell (by patent dated in Sept., 1419) was made Custodee 
of the temporalities from 1 May, 1417, in the Crown by the 
death of this Matthew. [Berm. tur. 7 Hen. 5, f. No. 12.] 

1418. Walter Format, a Franciscan Frier, and Doctor of Divinity, 
was promoted to the See of Ross upon the death of Matthew, 
by a provision from Pope Martin the Vth., on the 14th of No- 
vember, 1418. [Wad. Ann. Tom. 5, p. 121. Ad. Ann. 1418. et 
Regest. Pontif. ibid. p. 64.] 

1426. Cornelius MaoElchade succeeded. Upon the death of 
Walter Formay one John Bloxvorch, a Carmelite Frier, was 
advanced to this See by the Provision of Pope Martin the Vth., 
October the 23rd, 1424 ; but neglecting in due time to expe- 
dite his Apostollick Letters, he was put by; and Cornelius 
Mac-Elchade, a Franciscan Frier, was promoted in his room by 
the same Pope, on the 18th of August, 1426, as vacant by the 
death of Bishop Formay. [Wad. Ann. Tom. 5, p. 178. Ad. 
Ann. 1426. Regest. Pontif. ibid. p. 134.] This Bishop died in 
1448, according to the Four Masters, who call him Conor 

1488. One Thady was Bishop of Ross on the 29th of January, 
1488, and died a little after ; but I have not found when he 
was consecrated. [Ware.] 

1489. One Odo, or [Hugh], succeeded in 1489, and sat only five 
years. He died in 1494. [Ware.] 

1494. Edmund Couroey, a Franciscan Frier, and Professor of 
Divinity, was advanced to the See of Clobber by the Provision 
of Pope Siztus the IYth., on the 18th of June, 1484, and con- 


secrated the year following. He was translated to this See on 
the 26th of September, 1494. He died in a very advanced 
age, on the 14th of March, 1518, and was buried in a Monas- 
tery of his own Order at Timolagne, in the County of Cork, of 
which he new built the Steeple, Dormitory, Infirmary, and 
Library ; and was otherwise a great Benefactor to it both in 
his life-time and at his death, as the Obitual [King's Collect, 
p. 31 0J Book of that Convent testifies; which, however, 
placeth his Death on the 10th of March, 1518, and maketh 
him, before his advancement to Clogher, a Frier of that Con- 
vent. [Ware and Harris.] 

1519. He was succeeded by John Imubilt, who, when he arrived at 
Man's Estate, became a Cistertian Monk of the Abby of Maur, 
or de fonte vivo, in the County of Cork, and afterwards Abbat 
of that House. He died on the 9th of January, 1519, in a 
Franciscan Habit, and was buried in the Monastery of Timo- 
lague. [Ware.] 

1523. One Bonaventuee, a Spaniard, succeeded, and was alive in 
1523 ; but I find no account how long he lived after. [Ware.] 

1544. Dermod MaoDomnuil was Bishop of Ross in 1544 ; but I 
do not find when he was consecrated: He died in 1552 ; yet 
it is a question whether he did not resign before his Death. 

1551. John, Bishop of Boss, appears in a mandate dated 12 
August, 1551, for the consecration of Patrick Walsh, Bishop 
elect of Waterford. [Lib. Mun.] 

1561. Thomas O'Herlihy was elected or appointed by the Pope to 
be Bishop of Ross on June 17th, 1561, and on May 25, 1562, 
he repaired to Trent, in order to assist at the Council. [Le 
Plat.] He is accordingly found attending at that Council in 
1563 as Bishop of Ross. O'Sullevan, in his " Compendium of the 
History of Ireland/ 1 remarks, that O'Herlihy was detained 
prisoner for some time in England, but was at length dis- 
charged as being half-witted. He resigned in 1570, and died 
in 1579, and was buried in the Observantine Franciscan Abbey 
of Kilcrea, in the county of Cork. [Ware and Cotton.] 
O'Herlihy's signature at the Trent Council seems to have been 
" Thomas verllaith Hibernicus Episcopus Rossen." [Hibernia 
Dominicana, page 104.] 

1582. William Lyon was consecrated Bishop of Ross, to which he 
had been appointed by the Queen's letter of 30th March pre- 
ceding, and by patent dated May 12, 1582 ; and in the next 
year obtained the Sees of Cork and Cloyne in commendam. 
^Before his appointment, viz., in 1576, the Lord Deputy, Sir 
Henry Sidney, had recommended Cornelius O'Brien for this 
bishopric. [Sidney's Letters, vol. i., p. 158.] 

From that period the See of Ross has never been holden 
separately from Cork ; and the series of its Bishops will be 
found under that diocese. 




In the following list, the names of all Bishops and Incumbents are inserts*, 
with references to the pages where they have been already mentioned, the fint 
reference being that to the last or principal preferment of the individual. The 
names of all Unbeneficed Clergymen are also given, with brief notes.

Blair, John. I., 347. 

Blaxely, Thbophilub. I., 237. a.m. of Trin. Coll.) Cambridge. 


He was the eldest son of Robert Blakely, esq., of Monkstown 
Castle, eo. Dublin, by Mary Cusack, of the county Meath. 
Dean Blakely was ordained by the Bishop of Eildare, in 1800, 
and held the curacy of Kill. The Dean was famous for his 
Charity sermons, ajid wrote many articles in newspapers, Ac, 
on the leading subjects of the day. He was an advocate for 
the National Board. He wrote, in 1825, a pamphlet on Dr. 
Brace's Unitarian sermons, which caused many orthodox Pros* 
byterians to separate from Dr. Brace's teaching. 

The Dean's son, Alexander-Theophilus Blakely, has now 
become so famous as an inventor of a new method of construct- 
ing cannon, that I add some particulars of his history. 

He was educated at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, 
and there gained the first prizes in Mathematics and Fortifica- 
tions, and rapidly passed through all the classes, obtaining his 
commission in the Royal Artillery, at the age of 17. 

He was some years at the Ionian Islands, and on promotion 
to his company went to Gibraltar, in the summer of 1852. The 
heat of this rock, overpowering a constitution never* very robust, 
caused him to retire on half-pay. The Colonel in command 
(Dansey), accompanied his resignation with the kind remark, 
that he sent it " with great regret, from a young officer of so 
great promise." 

In November, 1854, after the breaking out of the Crimean 
War, he went to Balaclava, at considerable expense, and offered 
to place his inventions at the disposal of Lord Lyons, in attack- 
ing the Russian sea-forts of Sevastopol; but this offer was de- 
clined. The following summer he served in the Dardanelles 
as Assistant Quartermaster-General in the Cavalry of the 
Turkish Contingent, and also at Schumla. 

In December, 1855, on his father's death, he was obliged to 
return home, to be with his bereaved family ; and when about, 
once more, to repair to the seat of war, peace was proclaimed. 

He now turned his attention exclusively to his gun, and made 
many experiments, offering them to the Government But 
superior interest prevailing against him at home, and foreign 
governments appreciating the skill which he displayed, he 
made himself free to accept the various applications made to 
him for his cannon, by resigning his half-pay in 1860, thus, 
altogether, quitting the British service. 

In 1854 he published " The Defence of our Mercantile Sea- 
ports." Ridgeway, London. He also wrote, in 1855, " A few 
Remarks on the Science of Gunnery ;" and in 1859 published 
" A letter, <fec, claiming the original invention of an indispen- 
sable feature of the Armstrong Gun," <fec, <fec. 

Captain Blakely married, in 1856, Harriette, daughter of 
the late John Maugham Connell, esq., descended from an old 
Cornish family.

Meade, Alexander, I., 123. 

Meade, Dominiok. II. , 222 ; I., 231. He was uncle to William 
Meade, Dean of Cork. He could not have married Margaret, 
daughter of the fifth Lord Louth, as stated on the authority of 


family tradition, supported by the inscription on the chalice at 
Ballymartle ; for that lady married, in 1639, Sir Christopher 
Ayltner, who died in Sept., 1671, and she died in Dec, 1673, 
DuriDg this interval Dominick Meade was only from 10 to 12 
years old, and it is highly improbable that he married so 
young. See Lodge, vol. 7, page 62, of ArchdalTs Edition. 
The wife of Dominick Meade, Mary, dau. of Francis Smyth, 
survived her husband, as appears from the following abstract 
from the Registry of Deeds, Ireland, B. 80, page 477. Deed, 
dated 21 June, 1735, made between Rev. Percy Meade, Clk., 
only surviving son and heirol Rev. Dominick Meade, late Arch- 
deacon of Cloyne, deceased, and Mary Meade, als. Smith, 
widow and relict of the said Dominick, of the one part, and 
Jonas Devonsher, of Cork, merchant, of the other part, being a 
conveyance of the lands of Ballyda, from the Meades to Devon- 
sher, in consideration of £200, &c. According to this deed, 
Percy Meade was an elder brother of Richard, whose son, Sir 
Richard, died in 1776 ; otherwise Percy could not be heir to 
his father. [Fisher.]

taken from my Lord Bp. of Oorke, have been in my wife's 
family a considerable time. Her father, Oapt. Ffolliott, sold 
his lease thereof to her uncle, Synge, who, in 1706, renewed 
his lease thereof with Bishop Downes," <fcc. He proceeds, after 
other remarks, to say that he (John Moore) paid .£2,000 fine, 
and gave up to the late Bishop "119 acres of my land, upon 
which he has built his house, and made his improvements." 
The rent of the rest was greatly increased. In consideration 
of the large fine then paid, the rent was not to be raised. Yet

Reader, William. I., 318, 34, 50, 195; II., 543. The will of 
Archdeacon Reader, dated 12 August, 1771, to which were two 
codicils (dated respectively 13 Oct., 1772, and 18 July, 1774), 
was proved, with the second codicil only, on 26 August, 1774, 
by the executors, Rev. William Jephson (Archdeacon of Cork), 
and Mr. Jephson Busteed, junior, Attorney. 

The Archdeacon bequeathed to Rev. William Jephson, " Pri- 
mate Boyle's picture, drawn by Sir Godfrey Eneller, and a bed- 
stead and curtain of Lady Dun's work ;" — to Mr. Jephson Bus- 
teed, his gold watch, chain, and seals ; — to Rev. Dr. John For- 
sayeth, of T.G.D., all his books ; — to Rev. Edward Weekes, 
Curate of St. Peter's, Cork, £20, and the Bishop of Clogher's 
picture. He left also several legacies of £50, one of which 
was to Mr. James Can, his servant, and parish clerk of St. Peter's. 
To each of the eight poor widows in the parish Alms-house, he 
left 40*. The Archdeacon bequeathed also to the Minister and 
Churchwardens of St. Peter's, Cork, £100, to be put to interest 
for the use of the poor of that parish, in support of the parish 
poor-list. This last bequest was revoked by the first codicil, 
and the £100 was directed to be given to any 20 poor shop- 
keepers or traders, in sums of £5 each ; but this first codicil 
seems not to have been proved. The Archdeacon left his in- 
terest in the lease of Mount Long, where he resided, to Mr. 
.Jephson Busteed, and his property in King-street, Oxmans- 
town, held in fee-farm. grant from the Corporation of Dublin, to 
John Garstin, esq., of London, on certain conditions. 

This John Garstin was the eldest son and heir of James 
Garstin, esq., of Leragh Castle, co. Westmeath, and of Kilmore, 
co. Kildare, who was High Sheriff of Kildare in 1739. James 
Garstin was the only son of John Garstin, esq., of Leragh Castle, 
who married the aunt of Archdeacon William Reader — viz., 
Mary, sister of Enock Reader, Dean of Kilmore, and only daugh- 
ter of Enock Reader, Alderman and Lord Mayor of Dublin. 
The issue male of Enock Reader failing on the death of his grand- 
son, Archdeacon William Reader, unmarried, the representation 
of the family passed to the first-named John Garstin, esq., of 
Whitehall. [Family Papers of John Ribton Garstin, ll.bJ For

tenance £365 per annum, nearly the full value of the living.

Cork, Cloyne, or Ross, though bis two brothers, his son, and 
other members of his family were all beneficed in the oounty 
of Cork.

Stewart, of the co. Meath, whose grandfather was Colonel 
Stewart, Lieutenant-Governor of Edinburgh Castle, attainted 


in 1715 for implication in the plot to deliver that fortress to 
the Pretender, in consequence of which he settled with his 
family at the Hague. 

The Colonel's son, William Stewart, married a Dutch lady, 
and with his wife left the Hague with Lord Chesterfield, in 
1728, and settled in the county Mcath. They had two children 
— a daughter, married to the Rev. Richard Drury, d.d. ; and a 
son, Henry, who married Miss Jane Walsh, of Ardagh House, 
co. Louth, and had six sons and six daughters. The sons 
were — 1. Rev. William, of Well field, who married firstly, 
Eliza, dau. of Rev. Thomas Townseud, of Clogheen, and had 
issue — Eliza, wife of Capt. Roberts, of Kilmoney, and mother 
of Michael aud William Roberts, both Fellows of T.C.D., and 
also mother of Henry-Pepper, Pepper, John, and Hodder 
Roberts, as well as of two daughters — Eliza, wife of Francis 
Hodder, and Lydia, wife of Ralph Westrop, of Ravens wood, 
Carrigaline. Rev. W. Stewart married secondly, Jane, relict 
of Thomas Hungerford, esq., of Cahennore, and dau. of Jonas 
Travers, of Butlerstown ; by this marriage he had three sons — 
Henry, R. Rathbarry, Ross, q.v. ; Robert, m.d., dead ; and

Henry (son of Sir Robert) Warren ; Martha, wife of Bradshaw

Edward Worth, of Stephen's-green, West, Dublin [dated 15 
March, 1738 (codicil, dated 10 May, 1739), and proved 2 Dec, 
1741], relates to a bequest of £10 per an., to Ringrone parish : — 
"Whereas my father, Will. Worth, esq., has, by bis last 
will and testament, charged the rent-charge of £40 yearly, 
purchased by him from Saml. Barry, in co. Tipperary, with 
the payment of £10 yearly for ever, devised by the will of my 
father (outre grandfather), to four poor persons, of the hospital 
built by him, near the clock of Kinsale, until I or my heirs 
shall secure the said yearly sum out of lands in the county of 
Corke, lying more convenient. Therefore, for rendering more 
effectual the pious intention of my grandfather and father ; and 
in lieu of the said security given and devised by my said 
father, I give and devise the fee-farm rent, payable out of 
Ballinglanny, in the county of Corke, yearly and every year 
hereafter, to pay the said four persons of the said hospital, 
the full sum of ten pounds sterling, by equal half-yearly pay- 



inents, on every feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin 
Mary and the feast of St. Michael the Archangel. 

"Also, I give and bequeath to Trinity College, near Dublin, 
for the use of the library thereof, the books at Bathiarnham, 
lately belonging to Dr. Edwd. Worth, deceased, and formerly 
belonging to his father ; and in case the said college should 
have duplicates of any of the said books, then I desire that 
they may sell such of the said books as they shall have dupli- 
cates of, and with the money arising by and out of such sale to 
buy such other books as they shall think proper and conve- 
nient for the said library." 

He also bequeaths £10 to the poor of the parish of Christ 
Church, Cork.

Page 72. The services held in Brigowne parish are three (two each 
Sunday and one week evening) each week throughout the 
year, besides those on the church holidays. During the winter 
months, for the convenience of the congregation, the evening 
services are held, not in the church, but in the chapel of the 
College at Mitchelstown, to which place the parochial clergy, 
clerk, organist, sexton, as well as lights and fire are transferred. 
These services are strictly parochial, there being no evening 
services held in the chapel of the college for its own members 
by the Chaplain. The holy communion is administered twice 
on the festivals of Easter Day and Christmas Day in the parish 

The College of Mitchelstown, a noble charity, was founded 
by James King, the fourth Lord Kingston, whose ancestor the 
first Lord Kingston obtained the estates of Mitchelstown, by 
marriage with Catherine, only daughter of Sir William Fenton, 
of Mitchelstowne, who desired in his will, dated in 1666, to be 
buried in the chancel of Mitchelstowne Church, and left £200 
for a monument. Sir William Fenton was the son of Sir 
Geoffry Fenton, by his wife, Alice, relict of Hugh Brady, 
Bishop of Meath. [See Vol. I., p. 181.] 

The fourth Lord Kingston made his will on 15 June, 1756, 
and after provision for his wife, daughter, and grand-daughter, 
gave all his estates in the counties of Cork, Limerick, and Tip- 
perary, to the Archbishop of Cashel, and the Bishops of Cloyne, 
Waterford, and Limerick, all for the time being, in trust, for 
the term of forty years, to receive thereon t the sum of forty 
thousand pounds, and therewith to purchase an estate, and out 
of the rents and profits of such estate to build two houses or 
colleges, one for poor decayed gentlemen, and the other for 
poor decayed gentlewomen. 

After the erection of the houses or Colleges, the trustees were 
to apply the rents and profits, (fcc, to " the maintainance and 
" support of a Chaplain for the said Chapel, and so many poor 
" gentlemen and gentlewomen, members of the Church of Ire- 
" land as by law Established, with preference for ever hereafter 
" of such persons as have been or shall be tenants upon my said 
" estates in Ireland, (if in other respects proper to be placed 
" therein) as the said rents and profits will, from time to time, 
u extend to provide for." 

" And my will is" (proceeds the testator), " that the said 
" Chaplain shall, in the said chapel daily and every day, per- 
" form morning and evening service, according to the Common 
" Prayer, established in the Church of Ireland, and preach a 


" Sermon on every Sunday morning, and administer the Sacra- 
" nient of the Lord's Supper on the three great festivals, that 
" is to say, on Christmas Day, Easter Day, and Whitsunday, in 
" every year." 

His Lordship farther desired that the said Trustees or Gover- 
nors should have the "government of the said houses or 
" Colleges, and the nomination, ordering, and correcting, depri- 
" vation and expulsion of the said Chaplain, men, and women ; 
" to be exercised by them according to their discretion, and 
" the determination of the Majority of the Governors of the 
" said Charity for the time being, who shall be present at any 
" meeting, to be conclusive." 

Lord Kingston afterwards desires that lands not exceeding 
3 statute aores, in or near the town of Mitch elstown, should be 
chosen for a site for the houses or colleges ; and in a codicil, 
dated 24 May, 1758, declares that the Chaplain should be 
allowed £20 a-year by equal quarterly payments, and directs 
that the " Chaplain shall, from the time of his nomination, per- 
form such duty in the said chapel as is directed by my Will." 

By another codicil Lord Kingston directs that his collection 
of books then in England should, after his death, be carried to 
Ireland, and deposited in the Library, near his house, in 
Mitchelstown, with his other books there. He further directs 
that all his books so conveyed to Ireland, and whatever books 
should be in the said Library at Mitchelstown, at the time of 
his death, " should perpetually remain in the said library for 
the use of the owner or occupier for the time being of the said 
house at Mitchelstown ; and not to be sold, disposed of, or re- 
moved from thence on any pretence whatsoever; and the build- 
ing or place called his Library, where the same are intended to 
remain, shall for ever be appropriated to that purpose, and not 
be converted to any other use." 

He likewise wills that the Bishop of Cloynefor the time being 
may, after his decease, appoint a person properly qualified as 
a Librarian, whose office and business shall be to take care of 
and preserve from injury the said Library, to order and arrange 
the same, and to make and keep exact catalogues, provide and 
make fires in the said Library, <fcc., &c, <fec. He orders that 
the Librarian shall have for stipend £30 per an., payable out 
of two Mills in the town of Mitchelstown, &o., <fec. 

He further directs that his " two large Bibles shall, on his 
death, be sent to Ireland, and placed in the chapel of the Alms- 
house, at Mitchelstown aforesaid, and shall remain for perpetual 
use in the said chapel." 

By the last codicil, dated 6th Nov., 1761, his Lordship ex- 
tends the term of granting his estates to the said trustees to 
500 years, but limits the sum to be raised to £25,000, in trust, 
as before, to purchase an estate ; and in further trust to com- 


plete tbe building of the Aline-house and Chapel at Mitchels- 
town, already began by his Lordship, "so as to make tbe said 
Alms-house fit and commodious for the reception of 12 poor 
men and 12 poor women, and of a Chaplain, and so as to make 
the said Chapel decent and proper for having divine service 
performed therein. And in the next place for the perpetual 
support and repair of the buildings of said Alms-house and 
Chapel, and for the perpetual clothing and maintenance of 12 
poor men and 12 poor women there, and for providing a proper 
stipend to a Chaplain there, in such manner and subject to such 
regulations as I have already directed and established by my 
said will or any of my codicils." 
The Testator, Lord Kingston, died on 28 Dec., 1761. 
The above particulars have been taken from a printed copy 
of so much of Lord Kingston's will as related to the College and 
Library, lent to me by Dr. Graves, EL Brigowne. In the same 
little book is the following paragraph respecting the library : — 
"The late , at his own particular request, and 

under promise that no advantage would be taken, was appointed 
Librarian. After he had received the emolument for some 
years, the Mills were thrown down, and the ground on which 
they stood annexed to the demesne. Tbe books have been 
removed, the catalogue concealed or destroyed, and the Library 
apartment converted into an office. A new Mill has been 
built at a small distance from the site of the old Mill, and on 
the same mill-race." 

The present Chaplain of the College is the Rev. John Leech, 
who was appointed in 1847, and receives a stipend of £150 
per an. It would seem from what has been already stated con- 
cerning tbe services in the parish of Brigowne, that the present 
duties performed by the Chaplain of the College do not include 
the daily morning and evening services directed by Lord King- 
ston's will. 

The duties of the Chaplain are " to have divine service on 
Sundays, with a sermon, by direction of the will of Lord King- 
ston, and a daily service, held at 9 a.m., by direction of the late 
Bishop, Dr. Fitzgerald ; also to pay tbe members their stipends 
quarterly, and to attend to the fabric of the College." [Letter 
of Rev. J. Leech.] 

The College maintains at present (1863), 12 poor decayed 
gentlemen and 18 poor decayed gentlewomen, who have each 
of them, half a house, a yard, and garden, and £AQ per annum. 
There now are two vacancies, one for a man, the other for a 
woman, by death.

miles E. of Castlemartyr is the church of Kilcredan, which was 
founded by Sir Robert Tynte, in the year 1636. His tomb is 
on the southern side of the communion table. On a sarcopha- 
gus of black marble, enriched with armorial bearings in front 
and on the sides, is the effigy of the Founder, recumbent, the 
head reposing on a pillow. He is clad in armour, with his 
sword by his side. The features of the face are now worn flat, 
and the knight's feet are gone ; but otherwise the effigy is in 
good preservation. At his head and feet are his wives, the 
figures of whom seem most ably executed. The first wife, who 
kneels at his feet, with hands folded in prayer, is looking hea- 
venward, with an expression of tender feeling that is quite 
affecting. The other Lady is more staid and matronly, and 
the contrast is striking. Perhaps the younger of the twain 
died early, and the latter was the mother of Tynte's children. 
An entablature above Tynte's effigy, having a small pilaster at 
eaoh side, and on top a plain coping, surmounted by the Tynte 
shield of arms, shows the following epitaph : 

"hio iacet oorpvs eobeeti tynte militis avrati, HVIVB 



On the northern side of the Communion Table is the monu- 
ment of Sir Edward Harris, Chief Justice of Munster, and 
Second Justice of the King's Bench, whose eldest daughter, 
Philippa, was married to the aforesaid Sir Robert Tynte. The 
inscription is : 




Page 269, line 7. " MiniardfB," i.e., Minehead, in co. Somerset. 
In Somerset dialect this name is yet locally pronounced 
" Minyard." See Notes and Queries, vol. v., pp. 534, 535, first 
series. The French traveller, M. de la Boullaye le Gouz, tells 
us, that he sailed, 6 May, 1644, from "Mignard" (Minehead) 
for Ireland. Large numbers of the Irish Protestants, regno 
Jacobi II., landed at the port of Minehead, which lies nearly 
opposite to Cork, Youghal, and Waterford. [Vide Dean 
Davies' Diary, as edited by R. Caulfield, first page.] The 
Dean of Cloyne, doubtless, found here a refuge ; and at Mine- 
head the Prebendary of Eilmacdonogh was born.

Seals of the Bishops of Cork and Clothe. 

Sinob the publication of the " Sigilla Ecclesise Hibernicae Illustrata," 
by Richard Caulfield, the author of that work has discovered a much 
earlier seal than any of those he has heretofore met with. It is pen- 
dant to a sentence pronounced by John, Lord Bishop of Cork and 
Cloyne, in Christ Church, Cork, dated 25 March, 1514, to confirm 
Gerott in the principalitie of the Roch fords against John, the son 
of Henry, and Tibbot and Redmund, the sons of John, by reason of 
bastardie in their grandfather. The seal is oval. In the centre is 
a bishop habited in his pontificals on horseback — the horse walking 
on something resembling waves — at his back a cross; over his bead 
a demi- figure of another bishop giving the benediction, and beneath 
an animal resembling a dragon ; the legend is almost obliterated — 
material brown wax. 

The earliest Episcopal Seal of Cork and Ross mentioned in the 
" Sigilla Eccles. Hib. Illust." is impressed on a Court paper preserved 
among the Sarsfield MSS., dated 26 June, 1648. On it the figures 
of three ecclesiastics are visible, and a derai- figure beneath. Under 
the seal is the autograph of M. Boyle, who is represented in the 
document as " M. Boyle, Armiger, in artibus magister, judex sive 

? rases in omnibus causis testementariis, ifcc, infra comit. Corke." 
'his was probably the seal of Bishop Chapel. (Vid. Sigilla p. 29). 
The seals of Bishop Wilson and Archdeacon Kyle are engraved in 
the same work. The present arms of the See are a " Cross patee 
gules charged with a Crozier debruised of a mitre argent." 

Capitular Seals of Cork. 

A seal of the Dean of St Fin ba it's Cathedral is engraved in the 
" Sigilla Ecc. Hib. Illust." Vid. pltte v., fig. 3. It is attached to au 
entry in one of the old Chapter Books, which commences 1682. 
The building on this seal most probably represents the old cathedral, 
legend . . . . CATHED . . . .ST. FINB . . . CORK. 

The Capitular Seal at present in nse is engraved in the same 
work. Vid. plate v., fig. 4. It represents the front of the Cathedral. 
The doorway here exhibited was removed some time after the 
building of the Church, and the doorway which originally belonged 

vol. in. u 2 


to the Dominican Abbey of St. Mary's of tbe Isle was inserted in its 
stead. Legend— SIGIL : COMMVN : DECAN : ET : CAPITUL : 

The old official seal used by the Vicars-General during the close of 
the 1 7th and 18th century represents the Arms of the See, sur- 
mounted by a Cherub. It is engraved in the " Sigilla," pi. v., fig. 5. 

A small seal affixed to a dispensation of the degrees of consan- 
guinity, granted by Dominic Roche, Vic-Gen. of Cork, to James 
Ronan and Anastacia Thyrry, dated 15 June, 1641. This seal 
which represents an Angel holding a label, is thus described in the 
instrument : — " In quorum fidera, <fcc, subscripsimus et sigillum 
quo in talibus utiraur apponi curavimus." Legend defaced — 
material red wax. 

Seals of the Bishops of Cloyne." 

The earliest Episcopal seal of this See engraved in the " Sigilla 
Ecc. lllust." is that of Bishop Effingham, which was made from a 
drawing preserved in the Regi strum Novum of Christ Church 
Cathedral, Dublin, under the following entry : — " Litera ejusdem 
generis, Nicholai Episcopi Clonensis. Dat. Dublin die Veneris 
prox. post festum Apostolorum Symonis et Judra. Anno Domini 
mcclxxx none" " Sub sigillo ex rubea cera cujus hoc est ex- 

A bishop in his pontificals giving the benediction, holding in his 
left hand his pastoral staff. Legend— SIG : NICH : DEI : GRA- 
TIA : EPISCOPUS : CLONENSIS. Vid. pi. vi., fig. 10. The 
seal of Bishop Warburton is engraved at pi. vi.,fig. 11. 

Capitular Seals of Cloyne. 

The Chapter of Cloyne is mentioned in Caul field's Pipe Roll, in a 
deed executed between Daniel, Bishop of Cloyne, and Geffrey Marrey, 
dated the Wednesday after the feast of St. Luke the Evangelist, 
18th year of King John. 

The Chapter Seal at present in use represents the Cathedral ; it 
has, however, frequently undergone barbarous mutilations. It is 
engraved in the " Sigilla, 1 ' pi. vi., fig. 12. Legend — SIGILLVM : 
COMMVNE : DECANI : ET : CAP1T : CLONEN : 1700 (matrix 

The Seal of the Consistory is engraved in the same work, pi. 
vi.yjlg. 13. It represents the Arms of the See (azure a mitre be- 
tween three cross croslets fichee argent). Legend — S1GILL : 
OFFICII : CVRIiE : CONSIST : CLONENSIS (matrix silver). 

Seal of the Bishop of Ross. 

The only Episcopal Seal known to exist of this diocese is that of 
Stephen Brown, who was restored to the temporalities 6 May, 1402. 


Arms 1 and 4, three bare : 2 and 3, a mitre labelled. Legend— 
graved in the " Sigilla," <fcc, pi. vi., Jig. 14. The original matrix 
was in the possession of the late Very Rev. Richard Butler, Dean 
of Clonmaenoise. 

Capitular Seal of Ross. 

The seal at present in use represents St. Faehnan, the founder 
of the See, standing between a Church and a Round Tower, in his 
right hand a book, in his left a cross. Legend — SIGILLVM : 
It is engraved in Caulfield's " Sigilla," pi. vi.,Jig. 15. (Matrix silver, 
set in an old oak handle.)

In the V.B. of 1591 appear some names of places in Cork diocese 
not now to be found in the Visitation Books, viz. : — " Partioula de 
Gromley," near Little Island or Templeusque ; " Particula de Balli- 
mollan," vacant by resignation of D. Long, and, I suppose, a par- 
ticle of Ballinadee; "Particula de Glohine et Eiltarre," the same, I 
suppose, as Kildarrere et Ologhane, a part also of Ballinadee; " Par- 
ticula de Culcoletta," for which D. Long appeared ; and "Particula de 
Eilmanehis," which was marked " sequestrat," and which appeared 
between Brinny and Templemartin. 

The particle " de Culculetta" in 1634 is called " de Cloncollet ;" 
and the remark is added, I suppose, after inquiry by the Commis- 
sioners, " nescit ubi est." 



In Cloyne Diocese, in Hingston's " State of the Diocese in 
1774," appear the following Parishes: — 

" Menshye, Rect. and Vic. ; the scite unknown. The Reck is 
taxed in the King's books £1 10s. sterl., and the Vic. the like sum." 

" Nelan and Phelan, als. Kilfelan, an imp. Beet., in the bar. of 
Condon and Clan gibbon. Church in rnins. The. Hon. and Rev. 
Robert Bligh, Imp." 

At the commencement of the "Liber Regalis Visitationis" of 
1615, the value of the Bishoprics of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, is thus 
given : — " Episcopas residens, Willmus Lyon, Minister et Predi- 
cator. Domus Episcopi in bene statu. Valor hujus Episcopatus, 
Clonensis et Roscarbery 200 li. ; sicut asserit Episcopus non ex- 
cedit summam ducentarum Librarum." 

The following remarks are at the end of the Royal Visitation of 

"In this Diocese of Cork the number of Preachers is 17, whereof 
13 are resident. [N. B. Eos residentes appellamus qui habitant in 
eadem Diocesi in qua sunt beneficiati vel curati.] The number of 
reading Ministers is 18. The publique Schoolmaster in Cork is 
Mr. Brock, Treasr. of the Church, and a sufficient man." 

" In this Diocese of Cork there were some fower preachers pre- 
sented unto ns by the Ordinary of that Diocese for not observing 
the forme of Comon prayer prescribed in the Comon Booke. We 
called them before us, conferred with them, and they promised to 
obey our direcons. And we left direcons with the Bishop to ob- 
serve their carriage hereafter, and if they did not reforme them- 
selves in this point, viz., to observe the prescript forme of prayer, 
then we required him in his Visitacon to be holden at Michaelmas 
next, to deprive them, or take bonds for their appearance before us 
at Dublin in the beginning of this next terme." 

" Also in this Diocese there was a general complaint p'ferred unto 
us by the clergy against the English undertakers planted in that 
country, for altering and changing their lands from tillage to grazing, 
and refusing to answeare the tithe of their herbage. For redresse 
of this wrong done to the clergy, we layed downe an order under 
our hands, the Coppie of which order is set downe in fine Libri." 

"In this Diocese [of Cloyne] the number of Preachers is 17, 
whereof 10 only are resident. The number of reading Ministers is 
20. Sir Richard Boyle hath erected a publique school, and placed 
therein a sufficient schoolmaster." 

"In this Diocese of Ross the number of Preachers is 11, whereof 
10 are resident. The number of reading Ministers is 6. There is 
no publique Schoolemaster in this Diocese."

[Bennet MSS.] 

In 1669, according to the Y.B. of that .year, there were in hoc 
unita dioc. Cork Cloyne et Ross, 46 clergymen constantly resident, 
and but two, William Fitzgerald and Michael Delaune, non resident, 
of whom it was remarked by the Bishop, (c Ambo degentes in civi- 
tate Dublin, ratio non residentise eorum mihi (adhuo) ignota.* 

A list of the number of Protestant inhabitants in the several 
parishes of Cloyne diocese, was made by order of the Bishop, dated 
15 May, 1785. The several numbers have already been entered 
under the respective parishes. The total of Protestants was 3,304. 
[Bennet MSS.] 

In 1805 a return of the number of Protestant families in Cloyne 
was made by order of Archbishop Brodrick. The total number of 
families was 2,730, comprising, at 5 to each family, 13,650 indivi- 
duals, of whom about 3,000 were under 15 years of age. [Bennet

By the corn averages the rentcharges of the following parishes 
have been reduced to the sums mentioned after their respective 
names, viz. : — In Cork diocese — Ballinaboy to £316 19*. 10£<Z. ; 
Ballymoney to £499 4*. 3d. ; Drinagh to £297 18*. 9d ; Kilpat- 
rick to £76 U 8±d. ; Murragh to £524 16*, 8jd ; and Rathclarin

On the other hand, the rentcharges of Kilmoe, in Cork, Marshals- 
town, in Gloyne, and Kilcoe, in Ross, were raised. Applications 
were also made, I believe, with success, to increase the rentcharges 
in Ballynoe, Knockmourne, and Bohillane, in Cloyne. 


The following are the sums (at present, 1864) paid to the Incum- 
bents of Parishes in the Diocese of Cork, under the head of Min- 
ister's Money, viz. : —

In thb name of God, amen : I, John Hall, Doctor of Divinity, Rec- 
tor of the parish of Ardstragh, in the diocese of Deny, and county 
of Tyrone, and of the parish of Eathmoghy, in the diocese of Raphoe, 


and county of Donegal, being in good health, and of sound and dis- 
posing mind and memory, blessed be to God for it, but not know- 
ing how soon it may please God to take me out of this world, do 
think it fit to make my last will. And first I commend my soul into 
the hands of Almighty God, my Creator, hoping for eternal life and 
mercy by His, and the merits and mediation of my Lord and 
Saviour, Jesus Christ ; my body I commit to the earth, to be de- 
cently interred, without pomp or funeral sermon, only with prayers 
in the desk and at the grave ; and as for such worldly fortune as it 
has pleased God to bestow upon me, I give and bestow thereof as 
follows. Imprimis — my will is, that my funeral expenses, and 
whatever just debts I may happen to owe, if any, at my decease, be 
duly paid off and discharged. Item : whereas upon marriage with 
my dear and loving wife, Mrs. Susannah Hall, alias Harvey, with 
whom I received the fortune, as portion, of £800 stg., I did, in con- 
sideration of the same marriage and fortune, settle upon her the sum 
of £2,000 stg. for her provision, in case she should survive me, to 
be for her own use and at her sole disposal. I do hereby ratify and 
confirm the said settlement. Item : I give and bequeath to my 
nephew, Mr. Richard Wetherall, of Dublin, the sum of £200 stg., 
for the use of, and in trust for bis son, John Wetherall, my godson. 
Item : I give and bequeath to the person who shall be my assistant 
in the parish of Ardstragh at the time of my decease a year's salary, 
being £50 ; also to him who shall be my Curate in the parish of 
Bathmoghy, one year's salary, being likewise £50 stg. ; and lastly, 
to him who shall be my Curate of Chapel Dairg at the same time 
my proportion of his salary for one year, namely, one-third part of 
the whole, being £13 6*. Sd. Item : I give and bequeath to the 
poor of the parish of Ardstragh the sum of £30 stg., to be distri- 
buted by my successor in the said parish and his churchwardens as 
they shall think fit ; I likewise give to the poor of the parish of 
Rathmoghy the like sum, to be distributed in like manner, and to 
each of my servants who shall be such at the time of my decease, I 
give one year's wages. Item : I give and bequeath to my cousin, 
Thomas rurdon, of Kilpatrick, near Mallow, in the county of Cork, 
the sum of £20 stg. per annum during his natural life, to be paid by 
my Executrix hereafter to be named, or her Exors. or Admors., by two 
even and equal proportions, on the feasts of St. Philip and St. James, 
and of All Saints, the first payment to be made on the first of the 
said festivals which shall happen after my decease. Item : I give 
and bequeath to Trinity College, near Dublin, the sum of £100 stg., 
for the use of the public library, as a mark of the honor and esteem 
I have for that learned Society, and to make amends for any books 
that might have been lost through my neglect while I had the 
charge of said library. Item: I give and bequeath to the diocese 
of Raphoe all the books belonging to my study, together with the 
boxes wherein they stand, and all the proper furniture thereof, viz. : 
A pair of globes, the large table, the desks, and two chairs, to be 


tbe beginning of a library for tbe use of the clergy of that diocese, 
under the regulation and direction of the Bight Rev. the Lord Bishop 
for the time being, with his Dean and Chapter, desiring hereby 
to make some amends for not residing at my parish in the said 
diocese. Item : Whereas Bobert Longfield, of Castlemary, in the 
county of Cork, esq., has purchased from William Pen, of the city 
of London, esq., in trust forme, and to my use, and with my money, 
as appears by his, the said Bobert Longfieid's, declaration of trust, 
dated the 3rd day of May, 1733, certain lands situate in the barony 
of Imokilly, and county of Cork, namely, the lands Liskally, 
Ballynacole, Ballyshane, Aleicky, K nock an e, and Tullyphenabeg, 
which lands are at present in possession of William Pitman, of 
Ballyshane, in the said county and barony, gentleman, by virtue of 
a written article, under hand and seal, made thereof to him by the 
said Penn, for the term of 41 years, commencing from the 1st day 
of May, 1730, at the yearly rent of £90 stg., besides 1 shilling in 
the pound for receiver's fees, amounting to £4 10s. per annum, the 
whole liable to £4 10s. 8d. per annum for quit-rent. And whereas 
the clear yearly value of the lands aforesaid falls short of what I 
propose to myself, it is therefore my will that my executrix, here- 
after to be named, shall, so soon after my decease as she conveniently 
can, purchase, or cause to be purchased, other lands as near the 
aforesaid lands as may be at least within the same county, to the 
value of £20 or £30 a-year stg., which lands, when purchased, as 
well as those already purchased, shall be conveyed to the afore- 
named Bobert Longfield, esq., eldest son of Mary Longfield, alias 
Hawnby, younger daughter of my honoured and dear uncle, William 
Hawnby, one time of Mallow, in the county of Cork, gentleman ; 
and to Bartholomew Purdon, of Garrynane James, in the said 
county, gentleman, second son of the late Elizabeth Purdon, alias 
Hawnby, elder daughter of my said uncle, and to their heirs for 
ever ; in confidence, however, and my will is, that the said Bobert 
Longfield and Bartholomew Purdon shall, from and immediately 
after my decease, stand seized, as well of the before-recited lands 
already purchased, as those I have by my last Will and Testament 
directed to be purchased by my Executrix hereinafter named, for 
the special uses and trusts hereinafter mentioned, viz. : — In trust 
for, and to the sole use and benefit of my dear wife, for and during 
her natural life ; and after her decease, my will is, that the said 
Bobert Longfield and Bartholomew Purdon, and their heirs, for 
ever, stand and be seized of the said lands for the use and purpose 
that, out of the rents, issues, and profits of the same, three score 
pounds be laid out every year by my said Trustees towards the 
maintainance and education at school, and in Trinity College, near 
Dublin, of two youths, descendants of my dear uncle aforesaid, by 
his said daughters, Elizabeth and Mary, indifferently ; and that 
£40 a-year be also laid out towards the support of two widows, 
either themselves descended of the said William Hawnby, or 


the widows of his descendants by either of his daughters afore- 
said, indifferently; and that the rest of the yearly income of 
the said lands be employed by my Trustees in defraying the 
charge of executing the first trust ; and my will is, in the choice 
of the youths who shall receive the benefit of this charity, spe- 
cial regard be had to sobriety, diligence, and capacity for learn- 
ing and an inclination thereto, as also to the inability of their 
parents to afford them without such help a liberal Education, for 
these I would have the preference given, if otherwise equally quali- 
fied; and I direct that the youths chosen shall, each of them, have 
£30 per annum while at school, and for twelve years after his ad- 
mission into the said College, provided he shall continue there and 
pursue his studies so long ; but if he shall voluntarily withdraw 
himself from school or from the College, or be expelled or removed 
from either, such provision shall cease as to him, and another youth 
qualified as aforesaid, shall be chosen in his room ; or if it shall 
happen that any such youth be chosen a fellow of the said College, 
my will is this, viz., that he enjoy the said allowance for one full 
year only after such his election, for, as I look upon a junior fellow- 
ship to be a handsome provision for a young man, so it is my desire 
that this Charity be rendered as extensive as may be. And it is 
likewise my will that in the choice of the widows hereby to be pro- 
vided for, special care be had to their poverty, modesty, discretion, 
and quietness of behaviour, as qualifications to enable them to a 
preference ; and I do direct that the widows thus chosen shall have 
each £20 per annum, to be enjoyed by them during their natural 
lives; and if it should happen at any time that there be no youth 
or widows in the said families so qualified as to be within the in- 
tent and meaning of this my Charity, I do hereby direct that such 
money as should have been expended towards the maintainance of 
such youths shall be reserved and laid out by my said Trustees for 
the more liberal support of the next youths that shall be chosen ; 
and that such money as should have been expended towards the 
support of the widows be laid out upon poor maidens of the same 
families, to be distributed among the most necessitous of them, in 
such proportions as best suits their several circumstances, until there 
shall be a widow or widows qualified as aforesaid ; and to prevent 
all disputes that may otherwise happen between my said Trustees, 
or their heirs, about the choice of persons to receive the allowances 
here directed, whether youths, widows, or maidens, my will is, that 
my said Trustees, and their heirs, shall, for every such allowance, 
each of them nominate one person to the Right Rev. the Lord 
Bishop of Cloyne and his successors for the time being, whom I 
hereby empower out of the two so nominated to choose one under 
the restrictions and qualifications aforementioned ; and I humbly 
entreat their Lordships that they will not think this too great a 
trouble, but that they will also condescend to take upon themselves 
the inspection of this charity from time to time, and where they 


find anything amiss in the management of it, whether through 
neglect or otherwise, they will apply such remedies for the redress 
thereof as to their wisdom shall seem proper, that the same charity 
may be duly executed according to the true intent and meaning of 
this my settlement, which will, I hope, notwithstanding any defect 
in point of form or propriety of expression be clearly understood, and 
is, indeed, none other than to make a return in kind for the generous 
charity of my said dear uncle, Wm. Hawnby, who gaye me my 
education and supported my mother, as also to make an humble 
acknowledgment to Almighty God for His good providence in rais- 
ing us up so kind a friend. And lastly, in case any part of my real 
estate should remain hereinbefore undisposed of, I leave and bequeath 
the same to my dear wife, Susannah Hall, and her heirs for ever ; 
and as to the residue and remainder of my personal estate after my 
debts and legacies paid and discharged, I leave and bequeath the 
same to my dear wife, Susannah Hall, whom I hereby constitute 
and appoint my sole Executrix of this my last will and testament. 
For to her good economy and prndent management of our domestic 
affairs, to her tender care of my person and health, to her cheerful 
and good humour, and most sweet agreeable temper, joined with the 
strictest virtue, I chiefly owe under God the increase of my fortune, 
the length of my days, and the comfort of my life. Excellent 
woman, may God Almighty reward her. To conclude, therefore, 
I do hereby revoke, disannul, and make void all wills by me for- 
merly made, and I do declare this only to be my last will and testa- 
ment. In witness whereof, 1, the said John Hall, hare hereby pot 
my hand and seal to the same, this 24th day of February, 1734/5. 

Signed, sealed, and published in 
the presence of — R. Downes, 
Chas. Humble, Chas. Crawford. 

John Hall, (Seal.)

At the end of a MS. called " Usuardi Martirologium," which is now 
the property of Sir Thomas Phillipps, Baronet, of Middlehill, is a 
catalogue of the books of the ancient Franciscan Convent at Youghal. 
The MS. itself, written about the thirteenth century, is on vellum, 
and is in good preservation. The catalogue is written on two blank 
leaves at the end of the volume, in such contracted Latin as to be 
very difficult to decipher. It is as follows : —
